'What If' was the first of a series of three short films commissioned by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Heifer International to document the East Africa Dairy Development Program, a extraordinary $40 million pilot program trying to alleviate poverty in Rwanda, Kenya, and Uganda by training rural farmers. Our intent in this film was to dramatically capture the full scope of the program in under three minutes, using only images, text and music.
