Chatham University to host screening of independent film For the Next 7 Generations

PITTSBURGH (April 5, 2013) … Chatham University, Transformational Alliance Peaceburgh, and InterPlay Pittsburgh will host a public screening of independent film For the Next 7 Generations on April 26 in the Eddy Theater on the Shadyside Campus. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The community will be joined by the filmmaker, Carole Hart, and indigenous elders of Pittsburgh for a talkback session and celebration immediately following the screening.

Brought together by a common vision of peace, 13 tribal elders who are grandmothers from across the globe traveled to eight different countries to share one powerful message of hope. Five years in the making and shot on location from the remote villages of the Amazon to the steps of the Vatican, this award-winning film follows these women as they face a world in crisis. Produced and directed by the Emmy & Peabody Award-winning Carole Hart and Bruce Hart (Sesame Street, Free to Be…You and Me) and narrated by Ashley Judd, For the Next 7 Generations weaves a tapestry of tribal traditions and hope for the future. A suggested donation of $10 will be accepted at the door and all proceeds will support the work of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers.
