CALIFORNIA TYPEWRITER is a documentary portrait of artists, writers, and collectors who remain steadfastly loyal to the typewriter as a tool and muse, featuring Tom Hanks, John Mayer, David McCullough, and Sam Shepard while movingly following the struggles of California Typewriter, one of the last standing repair shops in America dedicated to keeping the aging machines clicking.

“[Doug] Nichol has created a loving valentine to all the iconoclasts who resist what the rest of the world defines as progress.” – Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter
“This quirky, obsessive documentary is about so much more than broken keys and busted type wheels. It’s really about how we create art.” – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
