8. Matangi/Maya/M.I.A.

We saw Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. (Stephen Loveridge, 2018), a documentary about musician/activist/director/provocateur M.I.A., a Tamil refugee who became an unlikely pop star. The movie traces her early life, her rise to fame, her attempts to use that fame to address the civil war and genocide in Sri Lanka, and the controversies that have surrounded her career. 

Michael Collins and Suzanne Akbari chatted afterwards to think through the movie.
