The beautiful Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins is making her way back into the movies this year! Vision Films are proud to announce the upcoming release of their latest movie, ‘After Masks‘, scheduled for release in May.
As we previously revealed back in October, T-Boz will be playing the role of Cheryl in the film. ‘After Masks’ is a 5-part anthology film, each addressing a different theme, and are seamlessly woven together with interstitial artistic commentary by Narrator, Mitchell Hoog (Saved by The Bell 2020).
T-Boz will star in the chapter, ‘Hold On‘, with a Black Lives Matter theme, directed by Tayo Amos. Synopsis: A spirited black woman’s personal and professional relationships are strained when she confronts the trauma of racist police brutality.

Despite the movie being filmed by the actors themselves during the stay-at-home order due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, this is not a recorded Zoom call. Co-Executive producer Andrew Burrill hopes that viewers enjoy the movie like a time capsule of the current times.
“We approached ‘After Masks’ with the utmost respect and aimed to create an authentic, living time capsule that reflects a multigenerational and diverse perspective of Covid-19″, he told PR Newswire. “I hope audiences find a moment of truth within After Masks and that our film inspires and provides an opportunity for others to reflect and ultimately follow hope above all else.”
‘After Masks’ will be available on major streaming and cable platforms in the US on May 18 including: iTunes, Microsoft Xbox, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu, Vimeo, Hoopla, and across hundreds of cable providers including Comcast, Spectrum, Charter, Cox, Dish, DirecTV and more.
