Watch This: Official Trailer for James Marsh's Chimp Doc 'Project Nim'
From the Oscar-winning team behind Man on Wire comes the story of Nim, the chimpanzee who, in the 1970s, became the focus of a landmark experiment that aimed to prove an ape—if raised and nurtured like a human child—could learn to communicate using sign language. It's a fascinating story and the doc holds up well exploring Nim's entire life. Roadside Attractions has debuted the official trailer on Apple for James Marsh's new documentary Project Nim, which opened the Sundance Film Fest earlier this year. I've seen it and it's a good film, but I didn't love it. Though this is a very charming trailer. Highly suggest catching this!
