From the team behind Man on Wire comes the story of Nim, the chimpanzee who in the 1970s became the focus of a landmark experiment which aimed to show 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, and the enduring impact he makes on the people he meets along the way, the film is an unflinching and unsentimental biography of an animal we tried to make human. What we learn about his true nature - and indeed our own - is comic, revealing and profoundly unsettling.Project Nim featuring Bob Angelini and Bern Cohen is streaming with subscription on Hulu, streaming with subscription on MUBI, streaming via tv everywhere with EPIX, and 7 others. It's a documentary movie with a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 97% and a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.4 (7,903 votes).
