UPDATE: According to some recent tweets by M.I.A. it looks like the documentary might just be back on:
Well either the documentary is resuming production or her orthopedist got back from vacation. Watch the trailer at the bottom of this post.

This is what happened to a kid whose dad went off and became a terrorist.” Steve Loveridge just uploaded a trailer for his M.I.A. documentary that according to M.I.A. has been blacklisted. From his tumblr:

I get an email every few weeks from Rocnation or Interscope saying it’s all going to start up again, but then nothing.

This was a teaser from 2012 to show Interscope what the film would feel like.

Reblog the shit out of this and maybe they’ll wake up…

The controversial documentary explores the life and career of M.I.A. and her upbringing including thoughts on her father’s role in terrorism. It features thoughts from Spike Jonze, Kanye West and more.

M.I.A. had this to say on twitter:

    She’s iconic. She’ll be remembered as a big player in music during the start of 00’s. Can’t wait for this & Matangi

    The strut adds to the stupidity and does a disservice by saying “thoughts on her terrorist father.” Her Dad wasn’t a terrorist, rather an intellectual who was a part of a group that had an offshoot that became a so-called terrorist sect. Jesus, if your own Dad served in the U.S. armed forces and dropped bombs or killed people in the Middle East, he was more of a terrorist than M.I.A.’s pops was.

    // . / . / is such an amazing artist who mixes art, music, and most importantly the TRUTH and puts it out into the world. I have followed her music and art for years and she never ceases me with her originality! Can’t wait for this to finally come out!

    Her music sucks. Can’t say I am concerned about what Pop Pop did in the war.
