Synopsis

She began as Matangi, daughter of the founder of Sri Lanka’s armed Tamil resistance, she hid from the government in the face of a vicious and bloody civil war. When her family fled to the UK, she became Maya, a precocious and creative immigrant teenager in London. Finally, the world met her as M.I.A. when she emerged on the global stage, 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. „Matangi/Maya/M.I.A” is a personal profile of the critically acclaimed artist, chronicling her remarkable journey from refugee immigrant to a pop star and showing her battles with the music industry and mainstream media as her success and fame explodes.
