Film screening
Nov 13, 2018

Directed by Stephen Loveridge, the film is drawn from a never-before-seen cache of personal footage spanning decades, painting an intimate portrait of the Sri Lankan artist and musician known as M.I.A. The documentary explores her negotiation of her role as an artist and celebrity through the lens of Tamil politics and migration to the West.

Following the screening, a brief facilitated discussion will be held with several panelists:

          • Dr. Suresh Canagarajah, a faculty member in the Department of Applied Linguistics and English and director of the Migration Studies Project
          • Dr. Jo Dumas, an associate teaching professor in the Department of Media Studies
          • Professor Pearl Gluck, a filmmaker and assistant professor in the Department of Media Studies.
