Kansas City based film director, Jon Brick, and CinemaKC are hosting a screening event on November 11, 2017, for the feature documentary film, Uncommon Allies.

The film was filmed in Kansas City, Mo., and is an important and timely film about homicide, gun violence and police-community relations.

Uncommon Allies shows how Rosilyn Temple, in the wake and devastation of her son’s murder, turned a personal search for justice into a life changing community call to action. At a time when widespread distrust of law enforcement is at a heightened level, Uncommon Allies explores Rosilyn’s role in effectively bridging the gap between grieving communities and the police department at every homicide scene in the Kansas City, Mo., area.

Rosilyn’s passion, leadership, and dedication are helping to improve police-community relations, and she has become a local hero and beacon of strength for her community.

Come join us for the screening follow by a panel discussion with Rosilyn Temple, Jon Brick, and members of the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department.
