In 1973, a newborn chimpanzee named Nim Chimpsky was taken from his mother and sent to live with a human family as part of a Columbia University research project. If Nim could learn human communication, it would challenge the notion of language as a unique, hard-wired trait separating humans from other animals. The film traces Nim’s unique journey within human society and explores the complex relationships between Nim and his human surrogates. (2K DCP Presentation) Project Nim is also part of a film series on Animal Behavior. Visit themester.indiana.edu for more information.
