I am so honored to be a part of this film. Forrest is a hero of mine. He changed my view on miracles and faith. I am honored to have been a part of his journey and now feel like I am part of his family. This movie is not just about Traumatic Brain Injury and Music Therapy, it is about the belief that humanity has the stretch, resilience, and love to get through the hardest of times
“Music Got Me Here,” is a film that chronicles the recovery of a young man, Forrest Allen, who sustained a traumatic brain injury from a snowboarding accident. The film provides an intimate look at the pivotal role clinical music therapy played in helping Forrest find his voice as described by Forrest’s music therapist, Tom Sweitzer
Forrest is just getting his voice -- and life -- back, when he’s faced with one medical setback after another. Shortly after his 21st birthday, a serious infection requires surgeons to remove the prosthetic implant protecting his brain, where a large part of his skull was removed after his accident. Without any protection for his brain, Forrest begins to decline — his words become garbled and his ability to survive is uncertain. The clock is ticking. Surgeons at Johns Hopkins Hospital agree to perform a groundbreaking surgery, never before performed on a civilian. It's Forrest's last hope -- and very risky. Filmed over the course of five years, this is a remarkable story about the power of music to heal and transform lives, often in miraculous ways.
