In today's Urban Planner: The Chilean Wine Festival, Dani and Sageev Oore perform their Radical Cycle, and Cinema Politica takes a look at mining with The Hole Story.
MUSIC: Radical Cycle may sound like a hippie bike trip, but it’s actually the new release from award-winning east coast musicians Dani and Sageev Oore. Today they’ll play selections from the album, which features classical numbers from the likes of Brahms, Schubert, and Berg. The songs have been broken down and reconstructed into a “cycle” for piano and soprano saxophone. The Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts (145 Queen Street West), 12–1 p.m., FREE.
CINEMA: So, how much do you know about mining? Richard Desjardins and Robert Monderie want you to know The Hole Story. Their documentary on the suffering of the environment and public health for the sake of profit screens tonight. It will be co-presented by Cinema Politica and the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network. To be followed by a discussion with local organizers. Bloor Hot Docs Cinema (506 Bloor Street West), 6:45 p.m., suggested donation $2–5.
DRINK: Today, 30 wineries descend on Toronto with 150 wines in tow for the annual Chilean Wine Festival. Chile’s wide spectrum of wines stems from its varying climates and diverse geography, from the coastal regions to the Andean foothills. Guests will be able to relax and enjoy tasty catered treats while sampling the wines and meeting with representatives from each winery. Royal Ontario Museum (100 Queen’s Park), 7–9:30 p.m., $75.
