The first trailer for the upcoming documentary I Am Heath Ledger was released on YouTube Tuesday, offering an intimate look at the Australian actor who died of a drug overdose in 2008.
"Heath was the most alive human," musician Ben Harper says in the preview. "If it wasn't on the edge, it didn't interest him." Meanwhile, filmmaker Matt Amato adds, "He wanted fame, and then when he got it, he didn't want it."
The trailer also features interviews with Heath's sister Kate. I Am Heath Ledger will be shown at this year's Tribeca Film Festival before debuting on Spike TV on May 17.
