MILAD KHAWAM - Composer  Milad is one of a handful of trumpeters in Syria, playing since he was 10 years old. When Milad left Syria he didn't bring his trumpet, he didn't want anything to happen to it on the way. He came to Berlin in January 2016.  After hearing an interview with Milad online and being mesmerised by his original and hauntingly beautiful music, the NMIB team had to meet him. They got together one night during the film shoot in Berlin. Over a cup of coffee Milad decided that he would compose and play the original score for No Monsters In Berlin.
