You might remember some talk in 2013 about The Identity Theft of Mitch Mustain, a full-length documentary made by Matthew Wolfe that screened at the Little Rock Film Festival and later at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.
Every now and then people ask me if I know of any way they might get a chance to see the film, and Wolfe just shared with me that three new screenings have been scheduled in Central and Northwest Arkansas. Dates, times, locations as follows:
- Little Rock - Wednesday, January 7th, 7:00pm - Riverdale 10. All tickets will be sold at the door - not available in advance.
- Fayetteville - Thursday, January 8th, 7:00pm - Malco Razorback. Tickets available in advance here and will be available at the box office.
- Springdale - Saturday, January 10th, 4:00pm - Malco Sunset. Tickets available in advance here and will be available at the box office.
Tickets are $10 each. Mustain and Wolfe will be in attendance at each screening and will lead a Q&A with the audience after the film has completed.
The film features extensive interviews with Mustain, many of the media members who covered the Hogs at the time as well as some national reporters, and more. Houston Nutt and Gus Malzahn are notably absent. However, I still think the movie is really well made and offers an in-depth look at one of the most memorable and controversial times in Razorback history, as well as a nice portrait of Mustain. The film focuses mostly on his recruitment and the 2006 season, but also shows what became of Mustain afterward.
