Fall 2012 September 24 in Gibsons
USA 2011, 93 min, documentary
Director: James Marsh
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.
Some Humans and the Chimp They Loved and Tormented. New York Times review by A.O. Scott, July 2011.
