CALIFORNIA TYPEWRITER is a thought-provoking portrait of artists, writers, and collectors, such as Tom Hanks, John Mayer, David McCullough, and Sam Shepard, who remain loyal to the typewriter as a tool and muse. It reflects on the changing dynamic between humans and machines, and encourages us to consider our own relationship with technology.

It also movingly documents the struggles of California Typewriter, one of the last standing repair shops in America dedicated to keeping the aging machines clicking.
