I, Meldy

I went to see “Imelda” last night with Kats (who incidentally, is parent to a 30+ lbs. cat). The film was good and I wouldn’t mind seeing it a second time. I was particularly impressed by the amount of archival footage filmmaker Ramona Diaz had unearthed – from the Japanese occupation of Manila, to Marcos’ early campaigns all the way to the snap elections, pre-Martial Law unrest, Martial Law era propaganda films. It was surreal. The woman is surreal. My goodness, this self-delusion that is, in Kats’ words, so “hermetically sealed”! 
“Thank God when they opened my closet, they found shoes, not skeletons.”
