Marie-Josèphe Yoyoyotte is one of the greatest editors of French cinema. By defying all standards, in a position that is still largely unknown, she has led an exceptional career with many major directors.

Marie-Josèphe Yoyotte edited several masterpieces such as François Truffaut’s The 400 Blows, Yves Robert’s War of the Buttons, Jean-Jacques Beineix’s Diva, Euzhan Palcy’s Sugar Cane Alley, and Alain Corneau’s All the Mornings of the World.

Active from the 1950s to the 2000s, she received three César Awards for Best Editing :

  • 1977 – Police Python 357 directed by Alain Corneau
  • 1997 – Microcosmos directed by Claude Nuridsany and Marie Pérennou
  • 2002 – Winged Migration directed by Jacques Perrin, Jacques Cluzaud, and Michel Debats

Who is the woman behind this exceptional career?
