Carole Hart is an award-winning director, producer, writer. She began her career as one of the original writers of Sesame Street, then moved on to other programming for children, including the best-selling Free to Be…You and Me, a record album, book and television special. She also produced a number of movies for television. Most recently, Carole is completing a feature documentary entitled For the Next 7 Generations.
The documentary tells the story of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers (shamans, medicine women, and healers) from all parts of the world who came together in 2004 to form a council: The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Since then, they have traveled together around the world —from Dharmasala, India, to the Amazon Rain forest, to mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, and more. Carole and her cameras have accompanied these woman, documenting their travels, their prayers, and how they have touched and changed the lives of those around them.
In this podcast, Carole Hart speaks with Merryn Jose about the story behind the gathering of the Thirteen Grandmothers. She also discusses how the film, ‘The Next 7 Generations’, came to be. Carole talks about her extraordinary healing of a terminal illness. She focuses, however, on the production of the documentary, the profundity of the film, and more.
