SILO is the product of an extensive collaboration between city-based filmmakers and the rural American community. The entire creative team spent years working with farmers, fire/rescue workers, and trusted agricultural institutions to ensure the authentic portrayal of the all-too-common danger of grain entrapment. SILO is not just a dramatic reminder of the importance of agricultural safety — it is also a testament to what communities can accomplish when they work together.
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.
Starring Jack DiFalco, Danny Ramirez, and Jeremy Holm, Marshall Burnette’s SILO is based on his acclaimed, Tribeca-selected documentary short of the same name. Following a festival premiere back in 2019, the drama is now set for a release this May and the first trailer has arrived.
