Even more monkey business with NIM

Not only do we get a poster for the upcoming documentary Project Nim, but we get two new clips and a brand new trailer.

Life With Stephanie
Herb Leaves:
From the Oscar and BAFTA winning filmmakers behind MAN ON WIRE, James Marsh and Simon Chinn, comes the story of Nim the chimpanzee. In the 1970s Nim 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 will open in cinemas across the UK Friday 12th August 2011
