Today’s world premiere of “Flint,” a new documentary about that city’s water crisis and the broader issues of infrastructure failure, partisan politics, and governmental accountability, was followed by a panel discussion on water quality.

The discussion at the East Hampton Cinema included the film's director, Anthony Baxter, its producer, Richard Phinney, Michelle Amelia Newman, one of the National Resources Defense Council attorneys leading a lawsuit against Newark, Sarah J. Meyland, associate professor of environmental technology and sustainability at New York Institute of Technology, and Kevin McAllister, founder and president of Defend H2O, a nonprofit based in Noyac.
