Back in July, M.I.A. asked fans for help with a documentary that she said was being blacklisted. But it looks like the project is now back on track. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the film has begun shooting in London.

Steve Loveridge is directing the project, which will explore M.I.A.’s life and music, from her arrival in the United Kingdom as a child fleeing war in Sri Lanka to her dominance of the pop charts. The U.K-based non-profit group BRITDOC will co-produce the project along with Yala Films.
