Project Nim, the follow-up to James Marsh‘s hit documentary Man on Wire, is so far one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year, ever since the rave reviews came swarming in from Sundance. Now a trailer has arrived and it seems to live up to all the hype. Watch it below!

Here is the official plot summary:

From producer Simon Chinn and director James Marsh, the Oscar®-winning team behind “Man on Wire” (Sundance ’08 Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award), comes the extraordinary story of Nim Chimpsky, 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 picaresque 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 unsettling.
