A Film You Need to Watch About Distracted Driving
"The 35-minute film [From One Second to the Next], which premiered on Thursday and is available to watch for free on YouTube--and which will be distributed to more than 40,000 high schools around the United States--is a brutal piece of documentary storytelling in which both the perpetrators and the victims of texting and driving open up about the ways that the collisions have changed their lives," writes Dan Solomon.

What we are doing has to do with a campaign, and the campaign is very, very simple: Don’t text and drive,' [Herzog] says when asked if the storytelling potential of the film’s subjects were what attracted him to the project. 'The consequences are catastrophic, and the statistics are appalling. This campaign certainly comes at the right time. It had to be done. Everything else is of secondary importance.'”
