A New York-based production company, Blood Orange Pictures, will bring the feature film SILO to the National Farm Machinery Show on February 14th, 2020, 4:30-6:30pm, South Wing Room B105. It is the first ever feature film to address the very real threat of grain entrapment.

Inspired by true events, the 70-minute 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.

This is a special homecoming for SILO. The movie was filmed on Quint and Leah Pottinger’s farm in New Haven, KY with the help of the New Hope and Bardstown fire departments who volunteered on set and even acted as extras in the film. Long-time SILO supporters and Kentucky residents Dale Dobson and Quint Pottinger will join SILO’s producer Sam Goldberg for a discussion after the film on February 14th.

SILO aims to both entertain and educate audiences in an effort to bring community members closer together. In both the making and marketing of the film SILO has partnered with prominent nonprofits and companies such as the Grain Handling Safety Coalition, Fallen Firefighters Foundation, Turtle Plastics, Sukup Manufacturing Co. and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.
