Irvine Welsh’s film Nuts is a dark comedy. Underneath the obvious comic elements, there are bigger issues at play: the much overlooked men’s health issue of testicular cancer, and the closeted racism among Ireland’s middle-class professionals. Ireland is a country that has recently undergone dramatic changes, and the comfortable materialistic world that Dominic has built around himself is about to fall apart. This short film is novelist and screenwriter (Trainspotting) Irvine Welsh’s directorial debut. The film was produced by the Media Factory.

Many artists cut their milk teeth sketching nudes in some stuffed up little conservatory, but in Oakland it all begins spray painting down the â€œtrain tracksâ€. The result is art that is diverse, urban, and somehow more real than its gentile counterparts elsewhere. Temescal Art, Oakland Style is a short film about the alternative Oakland art scene and features artists such as Adam 5100 whose stencil-based spray painting is in this monthâ€™s Harpers Magazine. Presented by artist and skateboarder Lee Alonzo West the film is a celebration of the next generation of Bay Area artists.
