Competition: ‘Project Nim’ DVD giveaway *closed*

CineVue have teamed up with the fine folks at Icon Entertainment to bring you lucky people another golden opportunity to get your hands on a moist slice of succulent cinema in the form of THREE DVD copies of James Marsh’s touching documentary Project Nim (2011). This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook fans, so if you haven’t already, head over to facebook.com/CineVueUK, ‘Like’ us, and then follow the instructions below.

From the Oscar-winning team behind the excellent Man on Wire (2008) comes Project Nim, a twisted tale of a 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 unsettling.

In order to be in with a chance of winning one of one of THREE Project Nim DVDs, all you have to do is answer this simple question:

Which famous chimpanzee reportedly died late last year at the age of 80?

a) Clyde
b) Cheeta
c) Marcel

To enter, simply fill out the contact form below with your name, email address, subject (‘Nim’), answer and postal address in the comment box provided.*

*Please note that this is a special competition which only our Facebook fans will be eligible to win. If you are not on our Facebook ‘Like’ list, then you can easily join us by following this link: facebook.com/CineVueUK.

Project Nim is available to own on DVD from 9 January, 2012.

The competition closes at 6pm on Thursday 12 January, 2012.
