“Let’s see what happens when we try to raise a chimpanzee as if it were human”: such was the controversial premise behind a famous 1970's experiment. Project Nim is a thought-provoking account of this research that ends up revealing as much about us, as it does about chimps. If you’ve got the curiosity, we’ve got the film …and the bananas. And if you come a little early, or stay a little later, you can participate in an activity-craft inspired by this real life experiment.
