Acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (The Queen of Versailles, Generation Wealth) continues her exploration of extreme wealth with the most political work of her career. Filmed over five years, this portrait of Imelda Marcos chronicles her efforts to exert control in the Philippines through support for President Rodrigo Duterte and the candidacy of her son Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos. Greenfield includes the voices of political dissidents who give damning testimony against the Marcos family. Courtesy of Showtime Documentary Films.
