Centered on the indomitable character of Imelda Marcos, The Kingmaker examines, with intimate access, the Marcos family’s improbable return to power in the Philippines. The film explores the disturbing legacy of the Marcos regime and chronicles Imelda’s then push to help her son, Bongbong, win the vice-presidency. An interesting reflection in the present day with Bongbong winning the Philippines presidency this year in 2022.
