Milad Alami, was born in Iran 1982, grew up in Sweden and now lives in Denmark. He graduated from The National Film School of Denmark in 2011. His films have been selected to numerous film festivals around the world. His graduation film, Nothing Can Touch Me was selected to over 40 international film festivals and won 10 awards.

His short film Void - co-directed with Aygul Bakanova and starring Lars Mikkelsen - premiered in Cannes’ Directors' Fortnight. The Charmer is Alami’s debut feature and it was the opening film of the New Directors competition at the 65th San Sebastián International Film Festival.

Ardalan Esmaili also imbues the character with a haunted fragility, never allowing the viewer to forget that he’s the victim of an unjust system which, having consigned him to second-class citizenship, is determined to keep him there.
