One of the greatest challenges in the making of this film was that it needed to give audiences a new, and nuanced, experience of a person many thought they already knew. We’re so proud to see MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. achieving that with vibrant, flashing, flying colors. Not only is it an unforgettable big screen experience, but this Cinereach original production, directed by Steve Loveridge, is an eye-opening look at a critical question:
What happens when someone whose voice has been silenced gets access to a microphone and a global stage?
The Atlantic calls MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. “A fantastic and kinetic fulfillment of a desire to be heard.”
Vulture writes that “the time feels suddenly ripe for the West to reassess [M.I.A.’s] perspective anew, to see not irrelevance, but foresight.”
LA Times says the film, “inspires deep respect for the fierce and independent artist [M.I.A.] is, a person whose voice is necessary, now more than ever.”
We could not agree more.
