Chicago Film Festival feature
Directed by Lauren Greenfield
Infamous in the 1980s for her massive shoe collection, former First Lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos became an international symbol of political corruption and decadence. Now, acclaimed filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles) gains extraordinary access to Marcos, who, despite her fall, remains a major powerbroker in her nation’s politics. The Kingmaker is a harrowing, up-close and personal portrait of political dynasties and the stubborn persistence of authoritarian rule.
