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 Resistance in WW2 and his mother’s miraculous escape enrouteto Auschwitz.
Philippe, a Hollywood cult-horror movie director and pop-artist, adopts a Film Noir detective persona to tell his family’s story. He also packs his paints and easel, as he embarks on a journey to create a bold and 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!
