Drawn from a cache of personal video recordings from the past 22 years, director Steve Loveridge’s Sundance award-winning MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. is a startlingly personal profile of the critically acclaimed artist, chronicling her remarkable journey from refugee immigrant to pop star. This documentary provides unparalleled, intimate access to M.I.A. in her battles with the music industry and mainstream media as her success and fame explodes, becoming one of the most recognisable, outspoken and provocative voices in music today.

The film will be preceded by a spoken word performance from Carys Williams and followed by a live performance from DJ, rapper and producer Nova Scotia the Truth.
