The Edison State Community College Agriculture Department will be hosting a screening of the independent film, SILO on Monday, March 9, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Robinson Theater of the Piqua Campus. The event is being offered free of charge, will include refreshments and is open to the community.
Before the event at 4:30 p.m., a Grain C.A.R.T. tour will be open to the public, with doors to the Robinson Theater opening at 5 p.m.
SILO is the first-ever feature film about a grain entrapment, a possible tragedy agricultural communities face every day.
Inspired by true events, SILO tells the story of Cody Rose, an 18-year-old who falls victim to a grain entrapment incident in a small American farm town. As grain 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.
In addition to the screening, a guided conversation will follow the film led by industry professionals and first responders. The post-film discussion is designed to address the safety issues as well as other themes in the film that affect people in agricultural communities.
This event is being made possible by contributions from The Anderson’s, Cargill, Nationwide Insurance, Bambauer Fertilizer and Grain, Shelby County Farm Bureau, and Miami East FFA Alumni.
Event partners include the OSU Extension of Darke, Miami, and Shelby County, OSU Agricultural Safety and Health, Ohio Farm Bureau, Nationwide Insurance, Upper Valley Career Center Agriculture Programs, Miami East High School FFA, and the Miami and Darke County Farm Bureaus.
