In today’s Urban Planner: make sure you’re correctly filling out your human rights complaint forms, participate in a film festival for young new Canadians, see a screening of a film about a film about Karl Marx, and catch a recreation of a thirteenth-century Mass.

APPLICATION CLINIC: If you feel that you were discriminated against by police during the G20, the Human Rights Legal Support Centre would like to help you file a complaint to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, and so they are hosting a clinic to walk you through the application process. ARCH Disability Law Centre (180 Dundas Street West), 10 a.m.–1 p.m. or 5 p.m.–7 p.m., FREE.
FILM FESTIVAL: Tonight, the YMCA of Greater Toronto hosts the YMCA Voices Film Festival at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. The festival screens films created through the YMCA’s Newcomer Youth Film Project, which offers training, equipment, and mentorship to recent immigrants to create films on the theme of coming to Canada. TIFF Bell Lightbox (350 King Street West), 5 p.m.–9 p.m., FREE.
FILM: The Goethe-Institut Toronto presents a screening of Alexander Kluge‘s 2008 film, Nachrichten aus der ideologischen Antike: Marx–Eisenstein–Das Kapital (News from Ideological Antiquity: Marx–Eisenstein–Capital), which is about Sergei Eisenstein‘s planned film of Karl Marx’s Das Kapital. It will be introduced by the Institut’s curator-in-residence, Felix Vogel. Kluge, a filmmaker of the New German Cinema, explores multitudes of perspectives regarding both Marx and Eisenstein, even creating miniatures of the theories in Das Kapital. Goethe-Institut Toronto (100 University Avenue, North Tower), 7 p.m., FREE.
MUSIC: Trio Mediaeval and the Toronto Consort with conductor David Fallis perform a Soundstreams-commissioned world premiere of a new work by Canadian composer James Rolfe and a new work by British composer Gavin Bryars. The evening will include a reconstruction of a thirteenth-century Mass, medieval dances, and folk songs. St. Anne’s Church (270 Gladstone Avenue), 8 p.m., $20–$60.
