Monsieur Mayonnaise




An audacious documentary, offering an utterly unique take on history. Monsieur Mayonnaise follows artist and cult filmmaker Philippe Mora as he uncovers his father’s remarkable exploits in the French Resistance. His parents were well-known artists and fixtures of Australian bohemian life. Less known is his father’s friendship with Marcel Marceau and how the two of them saved thousands of Jewish lives by stuffing secret Resistance documents in baguettes dripping with garlicky mayonnaise that German border guards would refuse to handle. Director Trevor Graham follows Mora as he turns his family history into a graphic novel.
