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:
