Monsieur Mayonnaise Screening and Conversation with Artist and Filmmaker Philippe Mora

November 9, 2017
7:00 PM


CMA partners with the 13th Annual Columbus Jewish Film Festival to present this highly acclaimed audacious documentary, offering an utterly unique take on Nazis, comics, and 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 Nazi border guards would refuse to handle. Director Trevor Graham follows Mora as he turns his family history into a graphic novel. Cost of the program is $12 for nonmembers, $10 for CMA and JCC members. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance by visiting www.cjfilmfest.org
