Hart decided to document and film their meetings. Her movie, For the Next 7 Generations, is part of this year's Santa Fe Film Festival. She and her husband, Bruce Hart, have produced other films. They also were among the original writers for Sesame Street.
The 84-minute film captures the interactions of the grandmothers' visits to different countries and tells each of their stories. All of the 13 women believe in Mother Earth and in saving it from human destruction. In their prayers, the women ask for blessings for the next seven generations.
