Along Interstate 49 between Joplin and Kansas City, The small town of Rich Hill serves as the backdrop of a documentary addressing the realities of rural poverty. KSMU’s Theresa Bettmann talked with one of the film’s directors to learn more.

For an in-depth look at the poverty issue, the film “Rich Hill” chronicles the lives of three young boys and their families. Co-director Tracy Droz Tragos says the project took over two years to complete.
