On January 14th, 2023 Hot Docs' friend and colleague Ravi Srinivasan passed away suddenly. This free screening is in honour and remembrance of him and his time with us here at Hot Docs as an associate programmer. During his time at Hot Docs, we came to know Ravi as someone who championed good storytelling, diverse cinema and above all, talented filmmakers.
Ravi programmed and hosted many films at the festival but none left a bigger mark on his time at Hot Docs than the documentary film Matangi/Maya/M.I.A. Himself of part Tamil background, Ravi loved this biopic about rapper and activist M.I.A. Drawn from hours of home movie footage shot by M.I.A. herself and her family, the film covers her early life in London and Sri Lanka and her rise to worldwide fame.
We screen this film in loving memory of Ravi.
