From international pop star to political provocateur, M.I.A. is unapologetically female, artistically driven and daringly different. Join Maya Arulpragasam (M.I.A.) and The New York Times for a discussion about the soothsaying songstress’s upcoming film MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. Drawn from a cache of personal tapes shot by Maya and her closest friends over the last 22 years, the film captures her remarkable journey from immigrant teenager to international pop sensation. Don’t miss this exciting chance to hear Maya as she discusses batting the establishment, the plight of the Sri Lankan people, and the question of whether pop stars can make effective political activists.
