Synopsis
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 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!
