From One Second to the Next

From One Second to the Next is a 35 minute anti-texting public service announcement which I watched solely because it was crafted by Werner Herzog. The short plays like a master class in documentary filmmaking (which, as I always add, is in a sad state) and features four cases of texting-and-driving victims and perpetrators telling their agonizing stories, a vital lesson on something most of us have been guilty of, as told by people whose lives were changed in an instant because of it.
