Indisputably one of the most disputed pop stars in the world Matangi or Maya, known by her stage name M.I.A is the daughter of the founder of the Sri Lankan separatists Tamil Tigers, a famed hip-hop artist, and a woman who carries the banner of her politics in her art.

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. Providing unparalleled, intimate access to the artist in her battles with the music industry and mainstream media as her success and fame explodes, becoming one of the most recognizable, outspoken and provocative voices in music today.
