Here's what teachers are saying about Darius Goes West ...

"What an amazing story of joy, love, perseverance, and brotherhood. The movie made me cry, laugh, and smile. Information about DMD and the need for handicapped accessible buildings are beautifully laced into this moving film. After leaving the theater, I felt compelled to share the experience with my biology students, family, and friends. I am so excited for the DGW curriculum to arrive."

- Tracy Lawrence, Home Street Middle School,
Bishop, CA


"What I saw was not only an inspiring, heart warming story, but something that was much, much more. The film is about Darius of course, a kid with a fatal disease and his travels across country, except it is not. It is also about those kids that I have been worried about who hold our future in their hands. It is a story about human kindness, love and dedication to a cause. It was probably about a good five minutes into the show before I started to tear up. The tears were not all sad ones, because at times I laughed so hard it hurt. Boy was I glad that the lights were out."

- Roy Carroll, Clarke Middle School, Athens, GA

"Darius Goes West is a heart felt story about a small group of young men who help each other understand the world. The boys develop a close friendship and set out to conquer a deadly disease through a road trip across the United States. This moving film should be shared with students and adults alike to help teach the power of friendship, determination, and service to others. It shows us so clearly that the contributions of an individual can impact others in tremendous ways. A must-see film that I will share with all of my students"

- Joel Palombo, High School Art Teacher, American Embassy School, New Delhi, India
