Scientology Network’s DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE, the weekly series providing a platform for Independent filmmakers to air films on important social, cultural and environmental issues, presents the documentary Uncommon Allies on December 27, 2020.
DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Uncommon Allies tells the story of Rosalyn Temple, a mother whose son was tragically murdered at the age of 26, who turned her search for justice into a life-changing call to action. Her work in helping to bridge the widespread distrust between grieving communities and the police in Kansas City has made her a local hero and a beacon of strength in her community.
Directed by Jon Brick, the feature-length documentary follows Rosalyn Temple’s tireless activism along with her team whose mission is to mobilize the community to get involved in violence prevention. From visiting homicide scenes in the city to providing crisis intervention and support for the victims’ families, Rosalyn’s work towards stemming the violence plaguing the city is commended by the community and law enforcement alike.
Uncommon Allies is the official selection of numerous film festivals, including the Baltimore International Black Film Festival and the Newport Beach Film Festival.
