Matangi / Maya / M.I.A.
Steve Loveridge, 2018, Sri Lanka, United Kingdom, USA, in English and Tamil with Hungarian subtitles

Drawn from a cache of personal video recordings spanning 22 years, the film chronicles a critically-acclaimed artist’s journey from refugee to pop star. As the daughter of the founder of Sri Lanka’s armed Tamil resistance, Matangi Arulpragasam had to hide from the government during a bloody civil war. When her family fled to the UK, she became a precocious and creative immigrant teen. Finally, she emerged on the global stage as M.I.A., having created a mashup, cut-and-paste identity that pulled from every corner of her journey along the way; a sonic sketchbook that blended Tamil politics, art-school punk, hip-hop beats and the unwavering, ultra-confident voice of a burgeoning multicultural youth.
