Bethany Arthouse Film Festival screening: Monsieur Mayonnaise

25 July 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm


Celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Bethany Arthouse Film Festival in Warrnambool.

Film four: MONSIEUR MAYONNAISE (Australia) 


The Moras are well known in Melbourne for their work in contemporary art and bohemian eateries. Less known however, is their story before moving to Australia in 1951…

As artist and filmmaker Philippe Mora works to produce a graphic novel about his late father, Georges Mora, an intriguing story unfolds. Georges was not in fact French, but rather had escaped to France in 1933 and worked with the French Resistance to save thousands of Jewish lives. Their secret ingredient? A simple trick using mayonnaise and baguettes.

This cracking documentary provides a lively, tasty and colourful look into a dramatic tale of survival during the Holocaust. With interviews, art and clips from some of Philippe’s previous works, the film moves at a lively and involving pace.

After a world premiere at last year’s Melbourne International Film Festival, Monsieur Mayonnaise will make its international debut at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival.
