Kini and Adams is a 1997 Burkinabé drama film directed by Idrissa Ouedraogo. It was filmed in Zimbabwe in English.[1]


Somewhere in southern Africa, in a huge region populated by poor peasants, two friends dream of a better life, far from their village, and decide to leave and make their dream come true. To leave, they attempt to repair an old car with second-hand spare parts, but their family and friends make fun of them. Little by little, their impetus dies down and so does their friendship. Finally, bitterness and jealousy put an end to the friendship between the two men and they become fierce enemies.



For this film Idrissa Ouedraogo was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival[2] and won the Jury prize at the 1998 Bermuda International Film Festival.[3][4]
