SILO – Free Movie Screening event sponsored by New Vision Co-op

New Vision Co-op is sponsoring a free viewing event of the movie SILO at Memorial Auditorium, Worthington, on Saturday, March 14th, 7 p.m.

SILO – Feeding the world comes at a cost that was inspired by true events. It is the story of the events that unfold when 18-year-old Cody Rose becomes 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 grain.

SILO tells of the many, very real stresses of life on the farm, especially the physical dangers. It also places equal emphasis on how rural communities come together when a neighbor is in need. 

The SILO Community Screening Campaign works with agricultural companies, nonprofits and local community organizers to host screenings all around North America. “‘SILO’ is a movie about a community coming together. Community and farming are in the core of who we are and we are excited to share this movie experience together with you,” said Matt Ashton, CEO New Vision Co-op. 

“This is an important film to show in our local farm communities.  New Vision Coop is bringing this movie to our communities to help open the discussion about the dangerous situations our farmers face while handling grain.  Not only does a grain entrapment situation affect the families of the farmers, but also the lives of the local rescue crews, community members or co-workers who witness an accident.  It is our hope to help educate the community to help prevent future incidents, “ Christy Riley, New Vision Co-op added.
