Nim Chimpsky is widely known for being raised by humans after he was taken from his mommy in 1973 at the Institute for Primate Studies in Oklahoma.
But now, to illustrate the chimpanzee's life of science experiments and learning sign language in order to communicate with others, his story is set to be told in an HBO documentary, which is based on the book, Nim Chimpsky: The Chimp Who Would Be Human by Elizabeth Hess.
Nim unfortunately passed in 2000 from a heart attack, but according to his fav caretaker, Bob Ingersoll, he said "It might actually be fair to say he died of a broken heart."
The film won't debut until December 20, but you can the 4-1-1 on Project Nim (above)!
