The new movie 'Silo' is being screened online Friday and Monday by the Canadian Canola Growers Association.

The film is about grain entrapment.

Producer Sam Goldberg talked about the movie.

"We like to say it's inspired by true stories. The original idea that sparked this movie was a grain bin entrapment that happened in Illinois in 2010. That accident, three teenage boys were trapped in the grain and two of them passed away. That got national headlines in America and the director of the film...heard about that and that's really what inspired his idea, and then he brought it to me."
