Trailer for the feature length video The Happy Bene by Dick Whyte and Tao Wells, a project documenting the art installation/performance The Beneficiary's Office.

"The project really struck a nerve with me... What you did Tao, I thought, was incredibly courageous and profound... To be both dependent on that system and to so publicly expose the issues around that system was very brave". - Chris Krauss
