A prominent editor of the Nouvelle Vague, Cécile Decugis contributed greatly to its development and shaped a new cinematic language. In Breathless, Decugis helped to bring about a revolution in film editing. When the film was deemed too long, Decugis was instructed to cut sections out of scenes, and the jump cut was born. Breaking established rules of continuity, the innovative use of jump cuts give the film a youthful energy and rhythm. Jean Seberg and Paul Belmondo play lovers on the run in this ground-breaking piece of cinema.

Part of Mother Cutter: Women Who Shaped Film, LIFF 2019's selection focused on women film editors.
