The short film by Michał Toczek is taking more international festivals by storm. This time the production has been invited to one of the oldest events of its kind in the US.

The Nashville Film Festival has been running for 54 years and is considered one of the oldest film events in the United States. Over the years, the festival has been hugely successful, receiving record numbers of film submissions from all over the world. This year's edition will begin on 28 September and run until 4 October.

There was only one entry from Poland among the productions invited to the program – the award-winning A Dead Marriage by Michał Toczek. This short film is a bittersweet story about two people meeting in unusual circumstances. Filip is a middle-aged man. He works as a professional film extra, specializing in playing dead bodies. On the set of a historical film, he meets Łucja, who plays the role of a dead woman. When lying on top of each other during shots and playing their roles, Filip and Łucja start developing a relationship.
