It's the exoskeleton that protects a building at the stage of construction but “Scaffolding” takes on a poetic sense in Matan Yair's debut feature, serving as a poignant coming-of-age metaphor. The Israeli director tells us how he first encountered the protagonist, Asher Lax, in the classroom when Yair was his teacher.
