Monsieur Mayonnaise is an artist’s epic adventure into his family’s secret past. Australian artist
and film-maker, Philippe Mora, investigates his father’s clandestine role in the French Résistance
in WW2 and his mother’s miraculous escape enroute to Auschwitz. Philippe, a Hollywood cult-
horror movie director and pop-artist, adopts a Film Noir persona to tell his family’s story. He also
packs his paints and easel, as he embarks on a journey to create an audacious comic book about
his parents, their survival and the Holocaust. From LA to Berlin, Paris to Melbourne, Monsieur
Mayonnaise is a richly layered, road movie starring artists, real life heroes, Nazi villains … and
baguettes with lashings of tasty French mayonnaise!
