30 ANS APRÈS… (30 YEARS LATER…) is a frame-by-frame film in which the filmmaker animates emblematic objects related to the 16mm format (metal and plastic film cans, rust, wound and unwound films, reels...), which she used in the 1990s, and home movies stored and forgotten for 30 years. The film evokes the rediscovery of this footage: traces of instants of lives captured on celluloid from which they escape, reactivating memory.

Original 16mm footage was scanned, and the filmmaker was introduced to digital editing and post-production software at Light Cone, in order to rework these images herself: bridges and passages between generations and cinematographic tools… 30 years later.

Françoise Thomas, born in 1957, lives in Paris. After studies in physics, she joined the project of creating the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie (City of Science and Industry) in Paris in 1983 and went on to have a professional career in scientific museum equipment and museography. She has been a filmmaker-member of Light Cone since the early 1980s.
