"Kids Table" is an independent film collaboration between Human Being Productions and Ben Levin, guitarist of the Boston band Bent Knee. The movie is a semi-autobiographical operatic story that follows a boy and his childhood friends as they build their new teenage identities.
Directed and shot by Human Being Productions co-founder Greg Bowen, the story is told completely through puppetry and fleece prosthetics. The full score, written by Levin and performed by Bent Knee, features the vocal talents of Kristin Santangelo, Aaron Emmanuel, Ben Levin, and Jessica Kion.
A short from Kids Table will premiere at the 2018 Maryland Film Festival in "Shorts: Psychedelic Tango"
Funding for "Kids Table" is thanks to a 2016 Live Arts Boston grant from The Boston Foundation. For more information, please email Greg Bowen.
