In this multi-award-winning documentary, fifteen-year-old Darius Weems and eleven of his best friends set off across America with the goal of getting Weems’ 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 Weems bravely face his 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 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.

Join the Sixth & I Film Club for a screening of the film and hear from some of the crew members.
