Albert Maysles, who died in March, was the subject of an April 19 tribute at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor presented by the Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival. The guests in attendance were Susan Froemke, a producer and editor of Maysles' "Grey Gardens," and the documentarian D.A. Pennebaker ("Don't Look Back") with his longtime collaborator, Chris Hegedus.

They spoke after a screening of Maysles' final film, "Iris." The evening's moderator was Jacqui Lofaro, the festival's executive director.

The folks at the festival filmed the event and thoughtfully posted an edited version online. The nearly hour-long video provides a chance to hear three documentary veterans discuss and remember Maysles, a towering figure in his field (along with his brother, David) and one of the last of the old-school, cinema verite filmmakers who believed objectivity was an ideal to strive for.
