> DESCRIPTION

Tel Aviv-based Guy Ben-Ner has received international acclaim over the past decade for his narrative-based videos that feature the artist and real members of his family as actors. Stealing Beauty, 2007 is a wry and poignant tale filmed in IKEA store showrooms during business hours in which a father attempts to teach lessons to his children on the virtues of private property.
