This scene brought me to tears. If you've seen Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. then you'll know why. If you haven't, please do - it's a brilliant documentary about artist and activist M.I.A. and her quest to use art to raise awareness about important issues and the backlash that provokes in the entertainment business. #MatangiMayaMIA #Matangi #Maya #MIA #mathangiarulpragasam #alternative #dance #electronic #hiphop #worldmusic #paperplanes #boomboomboomboom #andtakeyourmoney #refugeeswelcome #immigrant #SriLanka #Tamil #TamilTigers #freedomfighters #freedomfighter #life #valuealllife #valuelife #antioppression #antifascism #antifa #antiracism #antiracist #documentary #Superbowl

You may think you know M.I.A. from her hit songs “Paper Planes” and “Bad Girls,” or from her 2012 Super Bowl halftime show appearance, but you’ve never seen her like this! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Drawn from a cache of personal videos from the past 22 years, the Sundance award-winning MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. is a startling profile of the critically acclaimed superstar, chronicling her remarkable journey from refugee to immigrant to global phenom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Steve Loveridge’s @miadocumentary provides unparalleled, intimate access to the artist in her battles with the music industry and mainstream media en route to becoming one of the most recognizable, outspoken, and provocative voices in music today 🎤🎧 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See it TOMORROW at 7pm to close out this semester’s Movement: Asian/Pacific America series. . . . . . #miadoc #miadocumentary #matangimayamia #mathangiarulpragasam #steveloveridge #documentaryfilm #musicdocumentary #srilanka #asianpacificamericanheritagemonth #srilankantamil #arulpragasam #paperplanes #aplace4film

M.I.A - Mathangi Arulpragasam is the first performing artist in history to be nominated for the five major awards—Academy, Grammy, Brit, Mercury Prize and Alternative Turner Prize—and also the first artist of South Asian descent to be nominated for the Academy and Grammy in the same year. Her opinion and comments on the oppression of Sri Lankan Tamils, African Americans and Palestinians has drawn praise as well as criticism, leading to the US restricting her entry into the country. Her albums also reveal her strong political ideologies. She supports a number of charities and raises funds to help youth come out of violence and poverty in war-torn Africa. In Liberia, she supported school-building projects, and rehabilitation of former child soldiers. While ‘Rolling Stone’ named her as one of the defining artists of the 2000s, ‘Time’ magazine named her as one of the world's 100 most influential people in 2009. #WomensHistoryMonth #MathangiArulpragasam #PressForProgress #alternativemusic #electronicmusic #hiphop #worldmusic #GlassCeiling #TWDGglassceiling #TWDGmigrants #TWDGpeopleseekingasylum #TWDGrefugees #refugees #tamilrefugees #famouspeople #tamildiaspora #refugeerights #SriLanka #music Info - thefamouspeople.com Image - jungle city studios.
Will always love you @miamatangi ever since i saw your paper planes video premiere on tv back in the 2000s been a fan of yours for the longest. Went out to buy kala constantly banging it in middle school and high school especially bamboo banga and boyz then saw your video for bucky done gone and the shirts you came out with 😱 you were always ahead of your time way better than other artists which alot of artists now copied your style. Then you came out with jimmy and xxxo and those videos were insane! All the controversy from the media trying to silence you for your activisim on sri lanka and the tamil tigers explaining your views on it your experiences all the misconceptions on immigrants, diversity. Combining different music from cultures instruments into your own. Sucks i never got to see you in concert since you were banned from performing in the states for voicing your truth but hope one day i can see you. Your documentary ive been waiting for since you said ud be making one in the 2000s was mind blowing loved every second of it ❤

it was when she said... i feel like a mirror reflecting back everyone’s perception of me... she was telling all our stories. go see this documentary. it will change you. | @miamatangi #mathangiarulpragasam #MIA
#throwbacksunday ❤️ to the time @rizahmed interviewed @miamatangi for @interviewmag. When you bring two strong-willed, highly opinionated creative individuals together for a sit down - you know it’s going to be entertaining to read. The interview was kind of hilarious too 😊 This was published back in April, but the interview was inservice for @miamatangi Matangi/Maya/M.I.A., a new documentary based on her life that took a decade in the making. P.S: Can we also get these two in the studio to create a fire record? Yes, please!

Mathangi Maya Arulpragasam is one genius lyricist. I been a fan of her music since her first album and you really have to understand her to understand her music. It's not for everyone, that's for sure @miamatangi #mathangi #mathangiarulpragasam #miamusic #music #tour #arular #kala #maya #mathangitour #paperplanes #badgirlsdoitwell #musically #hiphop #electronic #avantpop #arulpragasam #kaliarulpragasam #birdflu
