Teaser Trailer

The film chronicles events of The Fort Wayne Mullet Man, Patrick Kopacz, and his evolution into a Facebook folk hero over the past three decades. Two best friends turn the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana upside down to unlock the mystery of what draws strangers to the Silver Fox and to understand how he became a local legend. Garnering a cult-like following for his nonchalant showmanship and immaculate silver mullet, Patrick serves as a representation of the freedom we rarely experience ourselves. Utilizing a combination of zany re-enactments, internet memes, archival footage and featuring interview subjects ranging from family/close friends to bar patrons, media personalities and intellectuals, AMERICAN MULLET: LEGEND OF THE SILVER FOX is the folktale of the 21st century.

American Mullet Movie Review

4 out of 5 Stars!

"...some of the shots from interviews like the one above, carefully lit and evoking a campfire aesthetic, infuse the tale with the kinds of limitless endeavors you’d dream up in a circle of friends. And that’s the refreshing, magical, fountain of youth spell that director Ryne Hastings and his collective crew cast in the film’s earnest approach to unfold a mystery, reminding us that the end matters far less than the journey it takes to get there or the many people you meet along the way." - Logan Bushey, Film Critic

Film delves into 'Mullet Man'

“We want to preserve his legend and part of that is keeping the folkloric aspect of it going,” Hastings said. “When you think about what folklore is, it's based on truth but also a lack of knowledge about the person.” Blake Sebring

Party in the back for Mullet movie

"Fort Wayne has had its share of memorable figures over the years. Disco Harry and The Walking Man come to mind immediately, along with historic figures like Johnny Appleseed and General “Mad” Anthony Wayne. But as iconic as those guys are, it could be argued that none are more memorable than the “Fort Wayne Mullet Man,” Patrick Kopacz." - Chris Hupe, Features Writer
