The Kingmaker - Rent
This film is available to rent for 48 hours.
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 present-day push to help her son, Bongbong, win 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.
★★★★★ "A larger, tragic picture of tyranny and corruption in the Philippines that might stand alongside Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Act of Killing" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
