Heath Ledger: A Life in Pictures

The NFSA hosts the exhibition Heath Ledger: A Life in Pictures, from 10 August 2018 to 10 February 2019.

Rare objects on display include research journals kept by Heath to prepare for his roles, original costumes from his films including The Dark Knight and Brokeback Mountain, his Academy Award and BAFTA Award for The Dark Knight, two of Heath’s motorcycles and several of his photo cameras and a diverse selection of objects reflecting Heath’s personal interests, ranging from chess to photography, music videos and directing.

Produced by the Western Australian Museum in close consultation with the Ledger family, A Life in Pictures is accompanied by a series of talks and special film screenings and offers a rare insight into the man behind the camera.

The exhibition attracts over 26,000 visitors.
