Virkeligheden overgår fiktionen, når Filippinernes tidligere førstedame taler ud i den nyligt Louisiana-aktuelle Lauren Greenfields portræt.

“Perception is real. The truth is not.” Sådan siger Imelda Marcos, Filippinernes tidligere førstedame, der blev berømt først for sin skønhed og skosamling, og siden for sit fald fra magtens tinder og flugt ud af landet i 1986 med diamanterne godt gemt i børnenes bleer. Nu er hun tilbage og stålsat på at få sin søn, Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’, valgt som vicepræsident for den kontroversielle præsident Duterte. Den prisvindende dokumentarist, Lauren Greenfield, har fået eksklusiv adgang til Marcos, der i filmen åbent fortæller (sin egen version af) historien om førstedamen, der ville være hele befolkningens moder.

Reality is bigger than fiction when the former first lady of the Philippines speaks out in this portrait by Lauren Greenfield.

“Perception is real. The truth is not.” So says Imelda Marcos, former first lady of the Philippines, who first became famous for her beauty and extensive shoe collection, and later for her family’s loss of power and escape from the country - with her diamonds hidden away safely in the children’s nappies. Now she’s back and set on getting her son, Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’, elected as the controversial President Rodrigo Duterte’s Vice President. The award-winning documentary filmmaker Lauren Greenfield has gained exclusive access to Marcos, who openly retells (her version of) the story of the first lady, who wanted to be the entire people’s mother.
