A decade after "Paper Planes" launched M.I.A. into the charts’ upper stratosphere, Stephen Loveridge’s all-access documentary offers sharp insights into the pop-culture firebrand whose creativity and charisma are rivalled by her combativeness and appetite for controversy. Decades of personal footage reveal a conflicted artist—torn between her Tamil resistance fighter heritage, her desire for superstardom and her capacity for acts of self-sabotage (one being her infamous Super Bowl performance).
