Project Nim. Doc. 2011.

From the Oscar-winning team behind MAN ON WIRE comes Project Nim, about the chimp who became the focus of a landmark experiment in the '70s which aimed to show that an ape could learn to communicate with language if raised like a human child. Following Nim's journey through human society, and the enduring impact he makes on the people he meets along the way, we learn about his true nature and our own... entertaining, revealing and deeply upsetting. The film opens this summer in theaters-I'm there with a box of tissues.
