Documentary about the former First Lady of the Philippines. Her rise from model to wife of Ferdinand Marcos. More than shoes. She had her strengths, but also a complete absence of awareness of her country’s suffering. The people seemed to love her, especially when she’d break into song at the drop of a hat. Good historical footage as well, especially the dated newsreels showing American imperialism.
