MANILA – The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) is re-screening a critically acclaimed documentary about former First Lady Imelda Marcos due to insistent public demand.

In a statement, CCP announced that “The Kingmaker” will have simultaneous screenings at Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino and Tanghalang Manuel Conde on February 19, in commemoration of the 34th anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution.

Screenings are scheduled at 1:30 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m., and 9 p.m. A block screening at 10 a.m. is also offered by CCP, while a panel discussion is set at 4 p.m.

“The Kingmaker” explores the disturbing legacy of the Marcos regime and examines the Marcos family’s improbably return to power in the Philippines.

“In an age when fake news impacts elections, Imelda’s comeback story is a cautionary tale,” said Lauren Greenfield, the award-winning filmmaker behind the 100-minute documentary.

“The Kingmaker” made its Philippine premiere last January 29 at the CCP.
