Independent Lens Episode: "Imelda"

Season 6, Episode 22
Episode Synopsis: “Imelda,” a snarky profile of the widow of former Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos told mostly by Marcos herself. The personality that emerges is charming but awesomely egotistical, perhaps self-deluded. And certainly well shod. Snide clips (George Hamilton crooning, “I can't give you anything but love, Imelda,” for example) alternate with a sober review of the Marcos regime, which was toppled in 1986. And “when they went through my closets they found shoes,” Imelda says, “not skeletons.”
Original Air Date: May 10, 2005
