DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Documentary filmmaker Catherine Jayasuriya’s insightful film on the devastating effects of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), Dusty's Trail: Summit of Borneo, will be making its DVD debut courtesy of Cinema Libre on Aug. 25.

Dusty Brandom suffers from Duchenne, he’s 20-years old and the progression of the disease all but guarantees that his days are numbered.   DMD is caused by a genetic defect and currently there is no cure, but that doesn’t stop those — the afflicted, their families and friends — from celebrating life and looking forward to the day when research unlocks a cure.

The film follows Dusty’s daily battles with the DMD, interviews with experts on the disease, coupled with testimonials from those who lives have been impacted by DMD.

These segments are intercut with the chronicling of events leading up to the annual assault on Mt. Kinabalu in Borneo … hikers gather from around the world to pay tribute to the boys (and young men) by climbing the rugged 13,435-foot high mountain.  In doing so they raise both awareness and funding for the fight against DMD.

Dusty's Trail: Summit of Borneo is not a “disease of the week” movie; pity me, pity me, but a celebration of life, an awareness builder and an inspirational tale all combined into a heartfelt presentation.
