Imelda Marcos is one of the most notorious figures in recent history, and she's the subject of Lauren Greenfield's new documentary The Kingmaker. It's an intimate profile of the former Philippine first lady as well as a critique on plutocracy. Lauren tells us how she got access to interview Marcos and about her other films: Generation Wealth and the brilliant Queen of Versailles.
Only on the "CBS This Morning" podcast, Emmy-award winning filmmaker Lauren Greenfield discusses her new Showtime documentary, "The Kingmaker" with "CBS This Morning Saturday" co-host Dana Jacobson. The documentary tell the story of how Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines, and her family relied on money and power to re-write the family and nation's history. Greenfield shares how she got intimate access to the Marcos family - and how their story provides a cautionary tale on the fragility of democracy and puts in perspective the return of authoritarian regimes and the rise of nationalism around the world. She also explains how Imelda Marcos was involved in her husband Ferdinand's two-decade rule that abolished democratic institutions and ushered in martial law and how she is using her influence to help her family gain political power once more.
