Documentary Keiko the Untold Story of the Star of Free Willy
Acquired by Discovery Channel for Europe, Latin America and the Middle East

December 15, 2014……Discovery Channel UK and Joshua Records, LLC have inked a deal on Theresa Demarest’s award-winning documentary film Keiko the Untold Story of the Star of Free Willy. The pan-territory deal includes Latin America, the Middle East and Europe. Joshua Records was represented by Ilyssa Goodman.

The film documents the life and true story of Keiko, star of the Free Willy franchise, the only orca ever released from captivity into the wild. Among the experts in the film are: Mark Berman, of the Free Willy-Keiko Foundation; Naomi Rose, former Senior Marine Biologist for The Humane Society of the United States; Paul Spong of OrcaLab, and Keiko’s last real-life caretakers Colin Baird and biologist Thorbjorg (Tobba) Valdis Kristjansdottir.

According to filmmaker Demarest, “Our entire KeikoDoc crew is proud to be teaming with Discovery Channel UK for the release of our documentary. Audiences all over the world will now be able to experience Keiko’s incredible untold story. I was often told that ‘this film couldn’t be made and even if someone did it, no one would care.’ Thanks to the Free Willy-Keiko Foundation, I knew a part of Keiko’s story that the majority of the public did not know and that’s what kept me going.”

“Keiko The Untold Story of the Star of Free Willy is continuing Keiko’s legacy for millions of people in a new generation,” says Berman. “This important documentary expands into why orcas must be free with their families, not subjects of human commerce and entertainment.” The Free Willy Keiko Foundation led the charge in getting Keiko released from captivity in 1994 and continues its efforts for other captive whales today, under the leadership of Dave Phillips and Mark Berman.
