Quiet Explosions out on DVD and streaming on Amazon and Vimeo beginning November 10, 2020

SYNOPSIS Special Forces Green Beret, Andrew Marr, returned from his third deployment, a quietly broken man. The explosives expert suffered a multitude of concussions while detonating hundreds of blasts in Afghanistan. Unable to cope with his illness, he fell into a spiral of drug and alcohol abuse; even contemplating suicide at one point. When it was nearly too late, he met Neuroendocrinologist Dr. Mark L. Gordon, who properly diagnosed his condition as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Since then, Gordon has been helping veterans impacted by Post Traumatic Syndrome (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) through the Warrior Angels Foundation founded by Adam and Andrew Marr and supported by podcast personality Joe Rogan. Professional athletes Mark Rypien (Washington Redskins Super Bowl XXVI MVP) and Anthony Davis (running back USC, Tampa Bay Buccaneers), candidly share their methods of coping with TBI and PTS, which they experienced from repetitive blows to the brain. Renowned big wave surfer Shawn Dollar and Ben Driebergen, a Marine veteran and winner of CBS's 35th “Survivor” season, reveal their struggles toward brain health. A former gymnast, a 9/11 first responder and the victim of military sexual trauma (MST) offer insights into their healing process from the disease which is estimated to have impacted 80 million people in the past 40 years. Additional hope and insightful methods are offered from experts Dr. Daniel G. Amen, Dr. Scott Sherr, and Dr. Robert Sammons in this growing field

Andrew Marr is a husband, father, Retired Special Forces Green Beret, entrepreneur, and best-selling co-author of Tales from the Blast Factory: A Brain Injured Special Forces Green Beret’s Journey Back from the Brink. His book has been turned into a full feature documentary titled Quiet Explosions: Healing the Brain by two-time Emmy Award-winning Director Jerri Sher, with three-time Academy Award-winner Michael Minkler contributing to the production, as well. Marr is also the co-founder of the Warrior Angels Foundation, www.waftbi.org. During multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan, Marr incurred dozens of traumatic brain injuries as he fought in the war. However, the effect of those injuries really began off the battlefield, nearly destroying him and his family. It almost cost him his life. Marr’s epic triumph came in seeking answers and treatment outside of the military medical establishment that had repeatedly failed him. His indomitable spirit, grit, and determination to find help and solutions, in defiance of conventional methods, led him on the powerful journey told in Tales From the Blast Factory. Thousands of veterans and other TBI sufferers are seeking the specific kind of healing that Marr, his physician Dr. Mark L. Gordon, and his medical team have now demonstrated hundreds of times as an effective alternative therapy. Andrew lives with his wife Becky, the love of his life, and their seven children in the Los Angeles area.
