The new documentary Imelda examines the life of Imelda Marcos, the ousted first lady of the Philippines. Filmmaker Ramona Diaz says Imelda Marcos' life and 20-year rule with her husband, the late Ferdinand Marcos, reflect their country's dramatic political history. Diaz talks with NPR's Bob Edwards.
