Drawn from a cache of personal video recordings from the past 22 years, this startlingly personal profile of the critically acclaimed artist, chronicles her remarkable journey from refugee immigrant to pop star. She began as Matangi, daughter of the founder of Sri Lanka’s Tamil resistance, hiding from the government during a bloody civil war. When her family fled to the UK, she became Maya, a creative immigrant teenager in London. Finally, the world met her as M.I.A. when she emerged on the global stage.
