Jon Brick and Rosilyn Temple- Determined to seek justice for her son’s homicide, a woman single-handedly changes the relationship between local families and the police for the better. In 2011, Rosilyn Temple’s son was murdered in his own apartment. He was 26 years old. To this day, his homicide remains unsolved. Uncommon Allies shows how Rosilyn, 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.
Originally seeking justice for her son’s murder, Rosilyn Temple from Kansas City, Missouri finds a new calling – to improve relationships between local families who have fallen victim to homicide and their city’s police force. She goes to every homicide scene with the police to comfort and encourage those who have been left without a child, a husband, a wife, or a friend and let them know they are not alone in their grief.
Uncommon Allies will be screening at the 2018 Kansas City Film Festival on Thursday April 12 at 7pm at the Cinemark on the Counntry Club Plaza.
