MONSIEUR MAYONNAISE is an artist's epic adventure into his family's secret past. Australian artist and film-maker, Philippe Mora, investigates his father George's clandestine role in the French Résistance in WW2 and his mother Mirka'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!

Director Trevor Graham is one of Australia's leading documentary filmmakers, a former Commissioning Editor at SBS and Head of Documentary at AFTRS and winner of two AFI Best Documentary Awards.
Some of Trevor's films are - Mabo: Life of an Island Man, Red Matildas, Painting the Town, Land Bilong Islanders, Dancing in the Moonlight, Paper Trail, Sugar Slaves, Aeroplane Dance, Mystique of the Pearl, Tosca - A Tale of Love and Torture, From Little Things Big Things Grow, Small Island Big Fight, The Pilot's Funeral, Keen As Mustard, Before Death Us Do Part, Make Hummus Not War.
