Idressa Ouedraogo's earliest memories of film revolved around the traveling cinemas that would tour the villages of his native West Africa. Born in the Upper Volta (now Burkina Faso), Ouedraogo would later study film in his native country, as well as in Paris and Kiev. It didn't take him very long to earn critical recognition, with his 1989 film Yam Daabo earning Ouedraogo the Fipresci award at the Cannes Film Festival. His second film, Yaaba, is probably his most successful and most widely respected work to date.
