Class and Lumiére films

by Kate Fortmueller

This film features two children fighting in their high chairs. Although this seems like a simple action, consider what their outfits, toys, chairs, and the setting tell us about their socio-economic background.  Compare the clothing and children in this Lumière film with the child in The Baby's Meal or the children in Children Digging for Clams.  Are there similarities in their dress?  What are the key differences and similarities in composition? Consider the background in each film.
