Darius Goes West: Film For Good

Though not a mass media film, Dar­ius Goes West won 28 film fes­ti­val awards dur­ing 2007. The movie tracks Dar­ius Weems, who has Duchenne Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy, as he trav­els across the US to get his wheel­chair worked over by MTV’s “Pimp My Ride.” And now it has been released on DVD. The film­mak­ers are look­ing to sell one mil­lion DVDs and raise $17 mil­lion for Duchenne mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy, all in order to find a treat­ment or cure. You can learn more about the film and buy a DVD here. Also watch a video clip about the movie and the fund rais­ing dri­ve below. The cause is good. Have a look. Thanks Collin for the heads up on this…
