Project Nim

USA 2011, 93 min, documentary
Director: James Marsh

Still from ' Project Nim'


From the team behind the riveting Man On Wire comes the true story of Nim Chimsky, the chimpanzee who, in the 1970s, became the focus of a landmark—and controversial—experiment which aimed to demonstrate that an ape could learn to communicate with language if raised and nurtured like a human child. Following Nim’s extraordinary journey through human society, this documentary is an unflinching, unsentimental, and at times disturbing biography of an animal that a driven scientist attempted to make one of us.
