CASA is working with the producers of SILO, the first-ever feature film about a grain entrapment. Together, we hope to use dramatic storytelling to prevent farm injuries and fatalities.
Inspired by true events, SILO 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.
Before producing the feature-length film, the SILO team produced a documentary to help educate farmers about the dangers of grain entrapment. Below is a link to that film, SILO: Edge of the Real World, as well as a discussion guide that can be used in a school or community setting.
SILO: Edge of the Real World
This short documentary follows Adam Fox, a young farmer, and Clay Althoff, a senior in high school, in Rising Sun, Indiana. After a grain entrapment shocks their small community, both of them grapple with the risks and rewards of a farmer’s life.
