VERO BEACH — Starting July 13, the Vero Beach Museum of Art will present its in-person summer film series “Yes, We Cannes,” with filmmaker Xaque Gruber, in connection with the VBMA exhibition A Tribute to Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Tom Golden Collection.
Three internationally acclaimed feature-length films and three film shorts will touch on key themes of the exhibition: perseverance and the struggle to find one’s place in the world. Mr. Gruber will provide introductory remarks on the cinematic importance of each film and share his personal connections to and experience at the Cannes Film Festival.
