An Opportunity Lost - The Hunger Games and Graffiti.

A graffiti of the mockingjay from Hunger Games I spotted
near Matunga station in Mumbai. 
The world of Hunger Games is about an oppressive monarchy trying to crumble a rebellion from the masses. While the Lionsgate studio's marketing the movie series have been groundbreaking, I think they missed on an opportunity.

Any revolution or rebellion is filled with codes. With symbols. And of course, with visual art forms. The Mockingjay - the bird you see in the adjacent picture is the symbol of the rebellion. The Studio should have painted the town red with the symbols made in graffiti. Not only would it be in line with the movie but also the story-line.
