"Matangi / Maya / M.I.A." Screening with Q&A

Join us for this opening weekend screening of the documentary film "MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A.," with a conversation with director Steve Loveridge and Krishanti Dharmaraj of the Center for Women's Global Leadership.

This Sundance award-winning film is a startlingly personal profile of the critically acclaimed artist M.I.A., chronicling her remarkable journey from refugee to immigrant to pop star. Daughter of a member of Sri Lanka’s armed Tamil resistance, her family fled to the UK, where she became a precocious and creative immigrant teenager in London. The world met her as M.I.A. when she emerged on the global stage, having created a sonic sketchbook that blended Tamil culture, art school punk, hip-hop beats and an unwavering, ultra-confident voice.
