SWIFF 2018: MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A.

SWIFF PRESENTS SWIFF 2018: MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A.

Before rapper M.I.A. became a global sensation, known for her musical daring and tireless political activism for the Tamil people in her native Sri Lanka, she was an aspiring filmmaker, having made countless video diaries chronicling her youth and private life. Mays's lifelong friend Steve Loveridge, has created an exhilarating mash-up that showcases the many forms of a polarizing and fascinating pop culture figure. Admirers and critics latched on to lyrics, videos—and a single finger that caused a multi-million-dollar lawsuit. Through it all, she maintained her rebellious spirit, much to the delight of her fans and the scorn of her detractors. This powerful documentary is a nuanced and intimate portrait of a woman finding her roots, voice, and stardom, who refuses to be compromised in her convictions. 

 


"Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. is an illuminating and enjoyable portrait of one of the most interesting pop musicians of this century who, even after this, remains inscrutable in many of the ways that matter." - Raju Mudhar, Toronto Star

 

"The thoughtfully assembled story of a young, opinionated and infinitely talented immigrant woman." Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com
