MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A

Dir: Steve Loveridge
Sri Lanka / United Kingdom / United States / 2018 / 96mins

From inflammatory music videos challenging mass execution or women’s rights in the Middle East, to performing live at the Grammys on her due date, Sri-Lankan born, London-based hip-hop artist M.I.A. is known for her provocative challenges to the assumed norm.

Starting her life in Sri Lanka, where her father founded the armed Tamil resistance, M.I.A. came to London as a 9-year-old refugee fleeing from a violent civil-war. She attended art school at Central Saint Martins but soon found expression in music, where she could pull together samples and references from every corner of her experience and find a voice for human rights.

This captivating portrait compiles archive footage shot by the artist over 22 years to glimpse the reality behind her music, from the immigrant experience to the power and pain of the spotlight

Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. screens daily from 21st September. Advanced tickets on sale now, with further times and tickets announced Tuesday 18th September.
