'MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A.'

She was born Mathangi Arulpragasam; she was nicknamed "Maya"; she created the multiculti musical persona known as M.I.A. Filmmaker and cohort Stephen Loveridge charts her evolution from London art-school student to chart-topping rapper to controversy magnet and back again, complete with loads of candid footage and behind-the-scenes drama. Speaking of which, the fact that we get to see this long-gestating doc at all – it was planned for a 2013 release around her album Matangi, before Loveridge leaked a trailer and quit the project; he returned to the fold a few mon ths later – is a minor miracle.
