Sarcastic Campaign

There are local elections tomorrow in Saxony-Anhalt. A few weeks ago I spotted this campaign poster in Merseburg:

The printed part says (roughly translated): Saxony-Anhalt - we are moving forward
The handwritten part adds: towards disaster.

Oh, I'm shoing "Good Bye, Lenin!" to my students tomorrow in class. And "Other People's Lives" is playing in town, too. And a former "Ostie" (who teaches German literature at the college) is going to talk to my students. Should be fun!

Yes it should be fun. Especially if it sparks some discussion.
I have yet to see "other people's lives", but was quite impressed by the movie "Roter Kakadu". I am not sure a subtitled version or even an English one exists, but it might be an interesting showing as well.
