10 Things we Loved About the New Heath Ledger: Life in Pictures Exhibition

Katarina Thane, Luna and me with Julie Samaras

Heath Ledger: A life in pictures is the new and free exhibition at the National Film and Sound Archives. The exhibition launch was a lovely evening, celebrating the life and diverse work of one of Australia's most acclaimed and beloved actors, Heath Ledger. Luna and I swayed to the raw, sweet sounds of artist, Grace Woodroofe and mingled with some of Australia's elite actors (lucky us).

One question that was asked by Jan Müller, CEO of NFSA. Was... 'what if? What if he was still around?' There was complete silence in the audience and you could tell, we were deeply thinking about it, 'what if?'. Curated in collaboration with his family, Health Ledger: Life in Pictures offers a very rare insight into the man in front and behind the camera.
