Project Nim: Planet of the Ape

Project NIM

Director James Marsh and the Oscar-winning team behind the documentary Man on Wire offer Project Nim, the story of a chimpanzee who became the focus of a landmark experiment in the ’70s to see if an ape reared and nurtured like a child could learn to communicate with sign language. It didn’t work. Landmark’s E Street Cinema, 555 11th St. NW. Call 202-452-7672 or visit landmarktheatres.com.
