From inflammatory music videos challenging mass execution or women’s rights in the Middle East, to performing live at the Grammys on her due date, Sri-Lankan born, London-based hip-hop artist M.I.A. is known for her provocative challenges to the assumed norm. Starting her life in Sri Lanka, where her father founded the armed Tamil resistance, M.I.A. came to London as a 9-year-old refugee fleeing from a violent civil-war. She attended art school at Central Saint Martins but soon found expression in music, where she could pull together samples and references from every corner of her experience and find a voice for human rights. This captivating portrait compiles archive footage shot by the artist over 22 years to glimpse the reality behind her music, from the immigrant experience to the power and pain of the spotlight. BBFC certified 18 - images of real killings and dead bodies ★★★★ "An intimate, illuminating doc" - Amon Warmann, Empire ★★★★ "She gets to tell her side, without spin" - Wendy Ide, The Observer
