Director: Steve Loveridge (as Stephen Loveridge)
Featuring a wealth of personal footage from throughout M.I.A’s life, Matangi/Maya/M.I.A is an absorbing portrait of a pop star who changed the game with her unflinching and controversial politics. Charting everything from her refugee childhood to being sued by the NFL, the doco is furiously alive with M.I.A’s unwavering spirit, and makes excellent use of her thrilling, worldly music.
