Columbia resident Adam Boster has worked in entertainment for three decades as an actor, writer, producer and more.

With “Lost Treasure of Jesse James,” his third feature as a director, Boster wanted to bring filmmaking back to his home state of Missouri. Inspired by "Indiana Jones" and "The Goonies," the not-yet-released film takes viewers on an exciting journey with its child cast through forests, caves and mineshafts. 

Boster and child actress Megan Sims joined KBIA producer Sam Mosher to discuss the cast, the importance of local filmmaking and the family they found through making the film.
