Grain Entrapment Film to Debut at Farm Progress Show
USAgNet - 08/14/2019

Blood Orange Pictures, a New York-based film and television production company, announced the upcoming release of the narrative feature film SILO. Set to launch at this year's Farm Progress Show in Decatur, IL on August 27th, the film is the first to address the very real threat of grain entrapment faced by the agricultural community every day.

SILO tells the story of Cody Rose, a teenager who falls victim to a grain entrapment incident in a small American farm town. As the grain flows like quicksand inside of the grain bin, SILO offers its viewers a window into the lives and relationships of the town locals as they come together in a race against the clock to save Cody's life.

"SILO has been a project five years in the making that we hope will bridge coastal and middle American audiences through the power of storytelling," said Sam Goldberg of Blood Orange Pictures. "We are excited to launch our film at the Farm Progress Show to an audience who understand better than anyone the life-threatening implications of grain entrapment."

The SILO producers will be at the Farm Progress Show for media and panel discussions on August 27th, 28th and 29th with the film's cast as well as special guest country music star Easton Corbin who will perform "The Only Life I Know," a song he wrote exclusively for the film.

The SILO Team is also partnering with the Grain Handling Safety Coalition, a thought leader on safety in the agricultural industry, to provide a discussion guide and educational resources in conjunction with the film. Alongside GHSC's board of directors and a top group of agricultural educators, the goal is to raise awareness around farm safety and mental health on the farm.
