The film follows a harrowing day in an American farm town. Disaster strikes when teenager Cody Rose is entrapped in a 50-foot-tall grain bin. When the corn turns to quicksand, family, neighbors and first responders must put aside their differences to rescue Cody from drowning in the crop that has sustained their community for generations.
The plot is based on multiple true accounts of recent grain entrapment accidents.
Silo is reaching audiences throughout the country with a hosted screening campaign. The unique release of the film gives rural communities the opportunity to exhibit the film outside of traditional movie theaters and provides them with discussion materials intended to spark conversations about grain entrapment, multi-generational farming, and mental health. According to AgDaily, "Goldberg hopes to host screenings with Farm Bureau members and FFA chapters to spread the message."
In a recent interview with Forbes, Sam Goldberg, the film's producer, highlighted the importance of local screenings of the film in order to promote safety and prevent further fatal grain entrapment accidents:
“Our movie is fundamentally about community and a communal experience, and we wanted our distribution to match that theme in our distribution and business plan. We kept it simple. If you want to see the movie, Silo, you go to our website; you click where ‘Host A Screening’ on the home page, you fill out a form, and then we’ll give you a call. What we tell people is that if you want bring Silo to your town, your local movie theater, or high school auditorium or local university, as long as you’re willing to watch it in a community setting, we are eager to license the film to you.”
The film has screened at an array of the nations largest trade shows and conferences in the world of agriculture, including the Farm Progress Show, Husker Harvest Days, The American Farm Bureau Federation Convention, and more.
