MONSIEUR MAYONNAISE is an artist’s epic adventure into his family’s secret past. 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, 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!
