About

Victor Marx and his family.
Victor Marx and his family.

This documentary will take me on a cross-country excursion with renowned martial arts teacher, Victor Marx; An inspirational speaker and a man who has been through trauma and lived through it to tell his story. Beginning at the age of 5, Marx suffered sexual, physical, and emotional abuse from people in and around his family.

Find out what happened to make this man someone who had no fear in wielding a sword, firing a gun as a Marine, or being in combat—only to be crumbled to nothingness when the demons of his past returned to haunt him. How did he triumph over all his demons?

This documentary captures the tears, the heartaches, and the victory one man had over his demons, and his mission to bring that same healing to others as he embarks on his first major speaking tour around the country. This is a transparent look into Marx’s life, the people affected, and those whose lives will be changed by his story. This is a journey not only to bring healing but to bring hope to those who have been afraid to let anyone else know the hurt deep inside from their own traumas. For without hurt, hope is needless; but without hope, hurt becomes endless

HOW WILL THE MONEY BE USED?

Our goal is to raise a minimum of $13,000 - every dollar contributed to the film will go directly towards:

PRODUCTION

Travel cost for a crew of 2, food, insurance, equipments and hard cost for Amazon fee & Kickstarter rewards/shipping.  

Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands. In other words, if we don’t meet our goal of $13,000 by the deadline, all pledges will be cancelled and we won't receive any contributions.

We need your support to make this film possible, so please make a pledge, TODAY!

No contribution is too big or too small.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Risks and challenges

Filming and documenting the specific disorder of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) requires a foundation and crew that is flexible. We are going in to this project with the mindset of a standard documentary crew, but we acknowledge that the story may evolve into one that is—at this point—unpredictable. We will work hard to capture the transparency of human nature and bring clarity to this disorder. This film is about hope, and we need your help to capture this story that has the power to impact so many others who are “triggered” by their own PTSD.
