How the Philippines' Imelda Marcos Provides a Cautionary Tale on the Fragility of Democracy
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.
