DJ AM Documentary to Premiere at Tribeca Festival

The highly anticipated documentary titled As I Am: The Life and Times of DJ AM is set to premiere this weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
Tribeca’s Loren Hammonds writes:

“Director Kevin Kerslake presents a rousing portrait of an artist driven by passion and swallowed by fame. In detailing his meteoric rise and tragic demise, Kerslake intersperses interviews with some of the biggest names in music including Mark Ronson, Steve Aoki, Jazzy Jeff, and more, who testify to the excellence and influence of AM’s deejay career. No voice is more powerful than AM’s own as he posthumously narrates the film, always making clear his understanding that any day might be his last.”
