3rd i Films is excited to co-present MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A. at the 2018 SFFILM Festival.
Directed by Steve Loveridge, 2018, running time 95 min
Can a pop star also be a revolutionary? This dichotomy, among others, is explored in this wide-ranging documentary about internationally renowned musician M.I.A. Told almost exclusively with footage that she herself shot, the film follows the genre-busting singer from her teenage years in London to her controversial Super Bowl performance and beyond, revealing how her struggles with fame and fortune lie alongside her unfaltering commitment to bring political awareness to her home country of Sri Lanka.
