Project Nim

Duration :


Summary: From the Oscar(R)-winning team behind "Man on Wire" comes the story of Nim: a chimpanzee who became the focus of a landmark Columbia University experiment in the 1970s aimed at showing an ape could learn to communicate with language if raised and nurtured like a human child. Through recent testimony from key participants and archival footage, this Sundance-winning film reveals Nim's extraordinary journey as he spent five years under the supervision of Dr. Herb Terrace in New York before the experiment was terminated, beginning a harrowing post-research odyssey.
