MATANGI/MAYA/M.I.A.

Plays October 16, 18 and 25 at the Michigan!

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.

Kusama: Infinity

Plays November 6 & 8 at the Michigan!

Now the top-selling female artist in the world, Yayoi Kusama overcame countless odds to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage. For decades, her work pushed boundaries that often alienated her from her peers and those in power in the art world. Kusama was an underdog with everything stacked against her-the trauma of growing up in Japan during World War II, life in a dysfunctional family that discouraged her creative ambitions, sexism and racism in the art establishment, mental illness in a culture where that was a particular shame, and eventually growing old and continuing to pursue and be devoted to her art full time.

Cinetopia Presents: Dawnland

Plays Tuesday, November 13 at 7PM at the Michigan. Presented by Cinetopia Film Festival & the Washtenaw County Peacemaking Court. Followed by a live Q&A with Judge Tim Connors, on-screen subjects & more!

It’s no secret that the U.S. government’s track record with Native Americans has never been stellar. But you may be unaware of the horrors documented in DAWNLAND. For much of the 20th century, social workers stole Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. They were given new names and forced to act, dress, and talk like white Americans. These methods were an effort to once again wipe Native Americans from our history. DAWNLAND focuses on the recent formation of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission by the Wabanaki tribes and the state of Maine that aims to help those affected by this atrocity. In this eye-opening documentary, their heartbreaking stories are finally told.

Special Cinetopia prices apply - $15 / $12 for members.
