Monsieur Mayonnaise chronicles Philippe Mora's father's clandestine role in the French Resistance during World War II and his mother's miraculous escape en route to Auschwitz.

Monsieur Mayonnaise is an artist’s epic adventure into his Jewish family’s resistance to Nazi oppression, revealing an incredible secret past. French Australian artist and award-winning filmmaker Philippe Mora 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 graphic 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 mayonnaise that contain life-saving secrets. Premiered at the 2017 Berlinale Film Festival, it has become an ongoing worldwide festival hit.
