MatanGi/MaYa/ M.i.a


Total Film - - Big Screen -

Bri­tish-Sri Lankan mu­si­cian M.I.A. takes cen­tre stage in this il­lu­mi­nat­ing bio-por­trait. Partly culled from years of footage shot by her­self, it’s far above your av­er­age mu­sic doc, with M.I.A. re­flect­ing on her dad’s po­lit­i­cal ac­tivism in the Tamil Tigers and her own ca­reer con­tro­ver­sies – no­tably flip­ping the bird dur­ing the Su­per Bowl. Frank and fas­ci­nat­ing. James Mot­tram
