SCAFFOLDING


17-year-old Asher has always been a troublemaker from grade school through high school, yet he is also endowed with a considerable amount of charm and street-wise sense. While his oppressive father sees him as a natural successor to the family's scaffolding business, Asher finds a different masculine role model in Rami, his new literature teacher. Feeling he can't take the humiliation his father puts him through anymore, Asher looks or a change, a new identity. But when an unexpected tragedy occurs, Asher crosses lines from which there is no turning back. “Quite unlike anything else in current Israeli cinema, the film focuses on Israel’s underclass - kids from blue collar, Sephardic families” Variety. World Premiere Cannes Film Festival, Best Supporting Actor Ophir (Israel’s Oscar) Award.
Topics: Israeli Youth, Sephardic, Fathers & Sons
