I have just seen Imelda a documentary about the Philippines’ former first lady. It is a very fair and balanced view on the life of Imelda Marcos. It only deals with her and does not deal with the Ferdinand Marcos and his regime.
Her life is similar to Eva Peron of Argentina.
It has funny scenes especially Imelda’s “Seven Portals.”
This film won an award at Sundance. I am just not sure which award probably in cinematography.
After watching this movie, I came to the conclusion that Mrs. Marcos is truly a very crazy woman. She is an embarrassment to Filipinos.
