This film tells the story of Nim, a chimpanzee who was raised and nurtured like a human child to discover if he could learn to communicate with sign language. Following Nim's extraordinary journey through human society, Project Nim 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. Part of Animal Voices Film Festival. Sponsored by Speak Out for Species.
