“Politics, football, and rock ’n’ roll,” are the themes explored in “Black and White Democracy,” a documentary on Brazil’s 1980s-era re-democratization movement. The film juxtaposes popular demands for free elections, the surge in Brazilian rock groups, and the activism of São Paulo’s Corinthians soccer club. 90 minutes. Portuguese with English subtitles.
