Tuesday, November 12, 2019

INTERAKSYON (TAGUIG CITY, PHILIPPINES) -- Celine Shimizu, the director of San Francisco State University’s School of Cinema and a filmmaker herself, pointed out that the 2019 documentary was at its strongest only “when it repeats the material from ‘Imelda.'”

She said that she was “shocked” at how “The Kingmaker” failed to acknowledge the work of Ramona Diaz, an award-winning filmmaker who was first granted unprecedented access to the former first lady.
