About the movie
M.I.A. is a rapper, activist, fashion designer and music producer, and known for hits like "Paper Planes" and "Bad Girl". She is world famous and a superstar, but different from most celebrities and pop artists. M.I.A. was born in Sri Lanka. As a daughter of the leader of one of the biggest Tamil rebel groups on the island, she was forced to flee to England at the age of 9. In this firework of a documentary we get to know the human being and activist behind the alias M.I.A. We follow her from childhood during the civil war in Sri Lanka, and we see how the family's involvement in the conflict, and the experience as an immigrant in East London, has shaped her political and artistic aspirations and attitudes.
With a mix of music videos, private footage from M.I.A.'s upbringing and interviews, director Steve Loveridge paints a personal portrait of one of the music industry's most fascinating, provocative and current artists.
