The Carmel Foundation presents ‘Keiko — The Real Free Willy’

Meet award-winning underwater photographer/cinematographer Chuck Davis as he relates his amazing adventures over a few years with the Orca Keiko, the inspiration for “Free Willy.” Traversing the seas of Norway, Iceland and the United States, the pair became fast friends, Davis strikingly documenting their travels. Along with telling the tale of the killer whale, Davis, a graduate of the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, also has filmed under the Arctic ice pack for the Smithsonian Institution and documented twenty years of expeditions with the legendary Jacques Cousteau and his son, Jean-Michel, aboard their ship, the Calypso.
