MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A – a film documenting the life of M.I.A.

British artist M.I.A. has just shared the trailer for her upcoming music documentary MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A..

Directed by Steve Loveridge, a longtime friend of M.I.A.’s, the film documents the musicians entire life, starting with her life as a child in Sri Lanka to her upbringing as an immigrant, her success as a pop star, and being sued by the NFL.

“I had to deal with the fact I was different, that I was an immigrant […] Music was my medicine, it just blew up so quickly […] I lived through a war, I came as a refugee, that is now a pop star, what are the goal posts?” she says in the trailer.
