The documentary film "Project Nim" will be shown at the Berkeley Heights Public Libary on Wednesday, May 2 at 7 p.m. In the 1970s a family in New York raised Nim, a chimpanzee, as if he were a human child. The experiment aimed to show that an ape could learn to communicate with language. 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. Free, no registration. The door to the meeting room will be opened at 6:45 p.m. The Berkeley Heights Public Library is located at 290 Plainfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights.
