Director Stephen Loveridge offers an  admiring profile of the tough-minded rapper, who has taken up the cause of Tamil resistance in Sri Lanka – and suffered a huge backlash as a result.

“A personal perspective on a singular career.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“It is very much the MIA story told from the MIA viewpoint.” (The Observer)

“An intimate, illuminating doc that puts the focus on M.I.A.’s activism instead of her music and is, in some ways, all the more admirable for it.” (Empire Magazine)

“At a time when pop profiles are increasingly bland self-promotion…this fascinating film from Stephen Loveridge is unafraid to mix the personal with the political and the painfully intimate.” (Times UK)
