When AT&T hired Werner Herzog to make a PSA for high schoolers against the dangers of texting and driving, they must have known they’d get a finished product that would scare the shit out of any young driver, yet alone a full grown adult.
From One Second To The Next is the short documentary that Herzog created for AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign, and damn is it effective. This dark and heart wrenching film follows the lives of different people who have been affected by the aftermath of someone who caused an accident while texting and driving. It’s a tough watch, especially the end, but completely worth the trip.
Being an unabashed Werner Herzog fanboy, I knew going into this that it’d strike a nerve, but I had no idea.
