In a celebrated career spanning more than 50 years, Dede Allen brought radical, modern editing techniques like jump cuts and audio overlays to the Hollywood screen and defined the language of New American Cinema. Allen’s work was highly influential and shifted the emphasis towards a view of film editing not purely as a technical discipline, but as an art. Released in 1967, Bonnie and Clyde’s iconic portrayal of partners in crime defied conventions in its depiction of violence and its moral ambiguity, and ushered in an exciting era of innovative filmmaking.
