From award-winning filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES, BIFF 2012) comes a complex and captivating portrait of the former first lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos. She and her husband Ferdinand ruled the country with an iron fist from 1965 to 1986. This was a time of political turmoil, violence and decadence and Imelda emerged as a kind of modern-day Marie Antoinette, infamous for her vast collection of expensive shoes. THE KINGMAKER looks behind this mythic facade and reveals a highly fascinating story of human psychology and cynical realpolitik.
