Darius Goes West

Presented by Waterloo Region Inclusion Film Series

In this multi-award-winning documentary, fifteen-year-old Darius Weems and eleven of his best friends set off across  America with the ultimate goal of getting his wheelchair customized on MTV’s Pimp My Ride. The result is a rarely seen testament to the explosive idealism of today’s youth, as well as a vivid portrayal of adventure, of brotherhood, and of the character and strength it takes to shed light on an uncertain future.

Not only does Darius Weems bravely face his own inevitable fate with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), but through his unflinching humor and his extraordinary laugh, he sparks a revolution in the lives of everyone who crosses–and then shares–his courageous path.

Part revolution, part revelation, this film proves to people of all ages how life, even when imperfect, is always worth the ride.

The Waterloo Region Inclusion Film Series screens films that will inspire, model, or challenge our thinking about what inclusion means. It is a chance for the community to come together and enjoy a film while considering what it means to be included. The Waterloo Region Inclusion Films Series is hosted by, and in support of, Facile Waterloo Region.

With Special Guest, Karen Dunbar, Service Specialist for Ontario/Nunavut with Muscular Dystrophy Canada
