The Brooks and Indie Memphis are teaming up again in a collaboration with The Global Film Initiative to bring you diverse films that cross borders and break barriers. Come see Masquerades, a romantic comedy from Algeria and the first in the Global Lens Series.
Directed and written by Lyes Salem, Masquerades tells the story of Mounir (played by the director), a young, hardworking man who struggles to find success and fortune for not only himself, but also his family. You see, his sister has narcolepsy and he wants to find her a wealthy beau to marry. However, his sister has plans of her own-and they involve Mounir’s best friend. You’ll have two chances to watch this tale unfold, and it won’t be what you expect.
