Though her name is Maya, you know her better as M.I.A., the global music superstar behind such hits as "Paper Planes" and "Bad Girls." Composed of over two decades of colorful personal footage, most of which was shot by M.I.A. herself, we chart her meteoric rise from a Sri Lankan immigrant teenager in London to global superstardom and the increased scrutiny and pressure that has come with it. Bursting with energy and style like its subject, this painstakingly compiled portrait is unconventional, uncompromised, and utterly engrossing.
