CALIFORNIA TYPEWRITER is a portrait of artists, writers, and collectors who remain steadfastly loyal to the typewriter as a tool and muse. It also movingly documents the struggles of one of the last standing repair shops in America dedicated to keeping the aging machines clicking. A thought-provoking meditation on the changing dynamic between humans and machines, CALIFORNIA TYPEWRITER encourages us to consider our own relationship with technology, old and new, as the digital age’s emphasis on speed and convenience reframes the question: who’s serving whom, human or machine?
