Project Nim Trailer

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!

Tells the story of a chimpanzee taken from its mother at birth and raised like a human child by a family in a brownstone on the upper West Side in the 1970s. For complete info on Nim Chimpsky, head to Wikipedia.

Project Nim is directed by Oscar winning British filmmaker James Marsh, of the documentaries Man on Wire and The Team, and the films The King and Red Riding: 1980. Marsh recreated certain scenes and interviews for use in the documentary. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was picked up by Roadside Attractions. They'll be bringing Project Nim in limited theaters starting on July 8th this summer.

Man. Constantly messing with nature. 'Yeah, let's breastfeed it, why not? Raise it like a baby? Sure! dress it up like it was hanging around Neverland? Of course! What can we learn? Who cares?! It's funny! Oh, it bit little Billy's head off then pee'd all over his body? Oh well, we weren't keeping any charts any way! Ho ho ho.' They should keep Chimapnzee's where they should be. In zoo's.

That is exactly the message this documentary tries to get across. It addresses that exact issue, so if that's the first thought that comes to your mind, then you really NEED to see this doc.
