The Kingmaker

Press kit

From award-winning filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles, Generation Wealth) and producer Frank Evers comes The Kingmaker, centred on the indomitable character of Imelda Marcos.

With intimate access to the Marcos family, witness their improbable return to power in the Philippines. The film explores the disturbing legacy of the Marcos regime and chronicles Imelda’s present-day push to help her son, Bongbong, with the vice-presidency. To this end, Imelda confidently rewrites her family’s history of corruption, replacing it with a narrative of a matriarch’s extravagant love for her country.
