Cushla Dillon

Editor

Self-taught editor Cushla Dillon moved from shorter works to features with Harry Sinclair's Topless Women Talk about their Lives: both the bite-sized TV series then the movie, for which she won her first NZ film award. Dillon has gone on to edit shorts, documentaries, and many more features — including The Price of Milk, Orphans & Kingdoms, and award-winning documentary This Way of Life.

Cushla’s been very influential on the whole style of Topless. I guess in a way Topless has partly evolved out of me trying to make things that Cushla wants to watch! Harry Sinclair, on Topless Women talk about their Lives
