Event

California Typewriter presented by the Curtis Contemporaries
California Typewriter presented by the Curtis Contemporaries
Director by Doug Nichol
Cast: Tom Hanks, John Mayer, David McCullough, and the late Sam Shepard
Genre: Documentary
1hr 43mins

In this magnificent filmic essay, director Doug Nichol explores the mythology attached to the typewriter, as cultural historians, collectors and various obsessives (including Tom Hanks, John Mayer, David McCullough, and the late Sam Shepard) celebrate the physicality of the typewriter both as object and means of summoning the creative spirit.

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.

A fascinating combination of history and emotional narrative plunges us into the mysterious, bittersweet moment in which a beloved technology faces extinction and delivers a thought provoking meditation on the changing dynamic between humans and machines.
