Synopsis

The inspiring story of Maya, daughter of a Tamil revolutionary, who’s become a pop phenomenon with her special brand of political rap

Maya to her friends and M.I.A. to the world, she’s a self-proclaimed “problematic pop star” — innovative and provocative. Loveridge blends pre- and post-fame footage into a high-energy documentary portrait that channels its subject’s eclectic style. The result is a smart, lively investigation of M.I.A.’s own concerns: the lives of immigrants worldwide, the plight of Tamil people, and the question of whether pop stars can make effective activists.
