Silo is the first-ever feature film about a grain entrapment,” states the website for the 2019 motion picture. Based on true events, the movie is set in a small American farm town where a teenage boy becomes trapped in a 50-foot-tall grain bin. As the corn inside acts like quicksand, community members and first responders come together to take life-saving action. Written by Jason Williamson and directed by Marshall Burnette, Silo makes its New England premiere with two screenings in Vergennes. Local actor Jeremy Holm appears in the film as volunteer firefighter Frank and attends both showings to facilitate post-screening Q&As.

Price: Donations.
