At age 19 Ben Lee said he had made the greatest Australian album of all time, eleven years later he is one of Australian music's most notorious self-styled icons. Nine years in the making and spanning three continents, Ben Lee: Catch My Disease is a feature documentary about pop music, spirituality, celebrity and the erosion of reality. A highly authored portrait of a charming, confounding, at times infuriating artist, Ben Lee: Catch my Disease is an acerbic yet profoundly intimate portrait of a unique child pop star who stepped through the looking glass of fame.
