Imelda tonight at Pusod

So, if you missed watching Ramon Diaz's Imelda on PBS and you live in the SF Bay Area. Stop by Pusod and you can commiserate with others watching the movie. Indeed, I agree with Nick that it could have gone farther in terms of giving more of a concrete analysis of the suffering they inflicted. But as an in-depth look into the mind of Imelda, it's an amazing feat. In one sense, it's very fair in that Diaz interviews everyone from her supporters, friends, children, relatives to her critics, political prisoners, US embassadors, etc. There's even an interview of a juror on the trial regarding the millions they stole from the Philippines. It's a trip that is as surreal as reality can get.
