Documentary : The Kingmaker (2020)

The Kingmaker (2020)

Riveting documentary highlighting the rise of Philippine first lady, Imelda Marcos, and the scandal and corruption during her husband's presidency. As the self declared "mother of the Philippines" she now shepherd's the rise of her son to power to reclaim the family's glory days of the past as the country drowns in poverty.

The searing relevancy of the rise, fall and resurrection of the despotic Marcos family provides a reflection of our current political landscape with comparisons to Trump made not so subtly. Worth a watch to see the decadence and opulence of a fallen political icon.
