Matangi/Maya/M.I.A

Documentary 1h 33m 2018

Aroview: A uniquely textured portrait of innovative Sri Lankan-English pop star and activist Maya Arulpragasm, drawn from a cache of personal tapes shot by her closest friends over the last 22 years - the result is a testament to artistic integrity that resonates beyond the appeal of her music.

Inspired by her roots, M.I.A. created a mashup, cut-and-paste identity that pulled from every corner of her journey; a sonic sketchbook that blended Tamil politics, Art school punk, hip-hop beats and the voice of multicultural youth.

“This is not a run-of-the-mill pop doc: it’s part defiant portrayal of a woman, part autobiographical travelogue, part tale of a country in turmoil through the coming of age story of a young girl, and part meditation on creativity and self-hood, baring all” ~CINEVUE
