Midwest Skeptics Society:
Chris Pollay Presents A Screening of the Documentary “Project Nim” tonight, Sat, Feb 2, 7pm at Perkins. Don't miss this. Chris used to be a Movie Critic in a former life. I'm looking forward to the film too. RSVP HERE: http://www.meetup.com/skeptics-137/
Our own Skeptics Resident Movie/Documentary Expert Critic, Chris Pollay, will begin in a film series over[masked]st with: “Why Raising Chimpanzees in a Human Household is a Truly Terrible Idea”.
This compelling documentary from 2011 follows a researcher who attempted to raise a chimpanzee to communicate and
coexist in a human family environment back in the 1970s. The idea behind this experiment was to learn more about the nature of chimpanzees, our closest living relatives who share more than 98% of our genetic blueprint. Unfortunately, the experiment was sloppy and it ultimately revealed something unsettling about human nature.
Come see what I considered one of the best films of that year and we’ll discuss what lessons we can learn from it.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>This should be a great night. In the
past Chris has always given a fun and informative evening. Members from all our groups love him. DON'T MISS THIS NIGHT!
Guess what? We will probably go out afterward for booze and more talk. Come and find out where we are going..............
