Andrew Marr is a medically-retired Special Forces Green Beret, and author of the book Tales from the Blast Factory that was recently turned into a full-feature documentary called Quiet Explosions.

Quiet Explosions follows the life and mission of Andrew Marr, a Special Forces Green Beret Veteran and the founder of the Warrior Angels Foundation. 

Andrew also recently wrote the book Tales from the Blast Factory, chronicling the ways in which his life was affected by Traumatic Brain Injury and the road to recovery he took using a unique therapy delivered by Dr. Mark Gordon. 

That book was recently turned into a documentary called Quiet Explosions with the help of Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Jerri Sher. 

LOGLINE

SYNOPSIS OF QUIET EXPLOSIONS
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. DanielG. Amen, Dr. Scott Sherr, and Dr. Robert Sammons in this growing field.
