De laatste editie van Smederij Cinema in 2018, met een exclusieve screening van de nieuwe docu over MIA 🎉

*scroll down for English*

Na premieres op Sundance Film Festival en ADE Festival – Amsterdam, binnenkort in Tilburg te zien: de nieuwe docu over MIA.

M.I.A. werd wereldberoemd met hits als ‘Paper Planes’ en ‘Bad Girls’. Ze is een zeer veelzijdig muzikant en maakte ook nog eens paar van de beste videoclips ooit (wie kan ooit de beelden van ontploffende ‘gingers’ vergeten, uit de controversiële videoclip van ‘Born Free’). Weinig mensen weten echter dat M.I.A., geboren in Sri Lanka en op vroege leeftijd een vluchteling van de burgeroorlog in haar land, een lang en bewogen leven leidde voor haar uiteindelijke ‘rise to fame’. Deze intieme docu laat haar opkomst zien en toont ons wat er zo speciaal is aan deze uitgesproken muzikant.


During this special screening we will show the new MIA documentary! After screenings at Sundance Film Festival and ADE Festival – Amsterdam now in Tilburg!

Drawn from a cache of personal video recordings from the past 22 years, director Steve Loveridge’s Sundance award winning MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. is a startlingly personal profile of the critically acclaimed artist, chronicling her remarkable journey from refugee immigrant to pop star.

She began as Matangi. Daughter of the founder of Sri Lanka’s armed Tamil resistance, she hid from the government in the face of a vicious and bloody civil war. When her family fled to the UK, she became Maya, a precocious and creative immigrant teenager in London. Finally, the world met her as M.I.A. when she emerged on the global stage, having created a mashup, cut-and-paste identity that pulled from every corner of her journey along the way; a sonic sketchbook that blended Tamil politics, art school punk, hip-hop beats and the unwavering, ultra-confident voice of a burgeoning multicultural youth.

Never one to compromise on her vision, Maya kept her camera rolling throughout. MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. provides unparalleled, intimate access to the artist in her battles with the music industry and mainstream media as her success and fame explodes, becoming one of the most recognizable, outspoken and provocative voices in music today.

At Smederij Cinema you will watch inspiring film in a unique location. Within the walls of an old industrial train hall you can enjoy a beer and snack and watch stories about the edges of life; stories of people escaping their own, sometimes harsh, realities from the illegal Iranian ravescene to the favela funk in Rio. An event with a short film, feature film, Q&A and of course some music is played after the screening (we are a club, so dancing is allowed!)
