An ode to the typewriter from Tom Hanks and Sam Sheppard. A fascinating look at our human connection to machines.

Discover collections of typewriters, curated by those who are not so quick to shrug off old technology. Hear about its value as a tool and source of inspiration from artists like Tom Hanks, John Mayer and the late Sam Shepard. California Typewriter looks at one of the last surviving typewriter repair shops, run by a man determined to keep the tradition alive. The film is a meditation on the changing dynamic between humans and machines, encouraging us to consider our relationship with technology. With today’s emphasis on speed and convenience, we are forced to ask: who’s serving whom, human or machine?
