    Director: Werner Herzog

    Acclaimed German filmmaker and documentarian Werner Herzog recently teamed up with an unlikely collaborator when AT&T approached him to ascertain if he would be interested in directing a series of short films to educate people on the dangers of texting while driving. As Herzog told AP, “What AT&T proposed immediately clicked and connected inside of me. There’s a completely new culture out there. I’m not a participant of texting and driving—or texting at all—but I see there’s something going on in civilization which is coming with great vehemence at us.” He went on to add, “In one second, entire lives are either wiped out or changed forever.”

    From One Second to the Next, Herzog’s resulting short-film documentary, focuses on four accidents, two resulting in life-shattering injuries and two resulting in fatalities. Herzog’s camera unflinchingly focuses in on the faces of both the survivors and the perpetrators. Their faces, their voices, their stories, all are haunting and devastating and hopefully life-changing. Take a look at the jarring, heartbreaking results of Herzog’s efforts and encourage those you know to do the same:
