After its inability to premiere last Christmas, the much-talked about comedy written by actress, Lydia Forson will premiere at the Silverbird Cinema in Accra, December 16. ‘Masquerades’ is a hilarious family comedy that explores contemporary family life during Christmas in a rather unusual way.

After several years apart a family is finally drawn home to their first Christmas by a tragedy; their uncle is recently deceased and they are charged with the responsibility of burying him. The funeral expenses pile up; and in pursuit of social status each of the family members are determined to maintain a lifestyle that will compliment how rich they ‘’claim’’ to be. However underneath all that is left unsaid, is a dysfunctional family struggling to keep up appearances, and as the story unfolds we are introduced to a family of secrets where everyone has something to hide. As their uncle’s funeral and Christmas draws near a series of hilarious events occur which lead to uncovering each family member’s secret and forces each family member to confront their true identities.

Just when they are beginning to settle into their newly found honest lives, a lie that puts all the other lies to shame –the king of deception is uncovered which leads to an unexpected chain of events. And we are again drawn into a web of habitual lies where nothing or no one is, as they seem. This story takes us on a trip to the reminiscent era when Christmas was only as complicated as food, drinks, and merry making. Through each character and situation a little piece of today’s family life is portrayed in a way that mirrors our society, and from beginning to end we are joined in a journey to rediscover the true meaning of Christmas in an untraditional way.

‘Masquerades’ is jointly written by Lydia Forson and Habiba Nelson. It stars Lydia Forson, Adjetey Anang, Desmond Elliot, Senanu Gbedawo, Katawere and others, and is directed by Belgian film maker, Xavier Arijs
