Project Nim to be presented

The Bay College Film Series presents Project Nim open to the public on Thursday (today), April 12, in the Besse Center Theater at 7 p.m.

From the Oscar-winning team behind Man on Wire comes the story of Nim, the chimpanzee who in the 1970s 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 affecting.

Tickets are $5 ($6.50 for all online ticket purchases), $2 for students with a Student ID at the Box Office and may be purchased at the Box Office or on our website at www.baycollege.edu/events. Box Office hours are 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Mon - Fri. Box office and doors open at 6:30 p.m. on April 12.
