UKJF: Scaffolding

Cinema

Directed by Matan Yair| 2016 | Israel, Poland | Hebrew with English subtitles | Starring Asher Lax, Ami Smolarchik, Yaacov Cohen, Keren Berger | 90mins | Suggested certificate 15

17 year-old Asher has always been the impulsive troublemaker at school. Whilst his powerful and strict father sees him as a natural successor to the family’s scaffolding business, Asher finds unexpected solace in his inspiring literature teacher.

Torn between the two worlds, Asher looks for a chance for a new life and new identity. An impressive debut from first-time director Matan Yair, who explores his troubled protagonist with tenderness and depth.
