From the Academy Award-winning team behind 'Man on Wire' comes the story of Nim, a chimpanzee who in the 1970s became the focus of a breakthrough experiment which aimed to show that an ape could learn to communicate with language if raised and nurtured like a human child. What was learned about his true nature — and indeed our own — is both fascinating and profoundly moving.

Critics Consensus: Equal parts hilarious, poignant, and heartbreaking, Project Nim not only tells a compelling story masterfully, but also raises the flag on the darker side of human nature.
Affecting chimpanzee docu is more than monkey business.
