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!

Australia, Germany, France, US, 2016, 94 mins., directed by Trevor Graham, English
