According to a photo by the Philippine Star, the image of the former first lady appeared in an electronic billboard located along JP Rizal Avenue in Makati City. The image was accompanied by a “Happy 93th [sic] Birthday,” greeting.

“The Kingmaker” director Laura Greenfield said on Twitter: “Clearly, whoever stole my image to wish Imelda Happy Birthday doesn’t understand copyright infringement.”

In another Facebook post, Greenfield identified the owner of the massive electronic billboard.

“I have just been notified by friends in the Philippines that my photograph of Imelda Marcos from THE KINGMAKER has been used without permission on a massive billboard owned by a company called Digital Out Of Home PH owned by a Mr. Alvin Carranza, a known Marcos apologist,” Greenfield said.
