In this terrific documentary, Bay Area director Doug Nichol explores the mythology attached to the common typewriter. Artists, cultural historians, collectors and various obsessives (including Tom Hanks, John Mayer, David McCullough and Sam Shepard) celebrate the physicality of the typewriter, both as an object and as a means of summoning the creative spirit. The film also movingly documents the struggles of Berkeley’s 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 technology faces extinction, and the film delivers a thought-provoking meditation on the changing dynamic between humans and machines. Camera/Editor/Director: Doug Nichol. (US 2017) 104 min.
