Lorraine Hess, Link TV, said:
“We are proud to license the US TV Premiere of ‘ONLY HUMAN’ for the new season of Link TV’s Weekly Foreign Film Series CINEMONDO Premiering Oct. 28. It was difficult to choose 15 films from around the world for our new Season of Cinemondo but I was intrigued and delighted by the way filmmaker Igor Ivanov adeptly intertwines 6 stories featuring different characters, all with their own challenges and personal journey. It makes a fantastic addition to our series, that includes award-winning Arthouse and international films of substance and quality.”
