The Feature Film
Inspired by true events, SILO is a film that spans one long day on a small farm in Middle America. It begins like any other day: a single mother wrangles her two teenage sons out of bed and sends them off to a neighbor’s corn farm to lend a hand and learn a trade they will likely inherit. But a combination of carelessness and bad luck lead to an all-too-common tragedy felt by grain farmers across the country. This story shares a true vision of the modern farm and illuminates the current reality of life in rural America: a vast expanse seen by too many as merely a speed bump between coasts.
