Werner Herzog on texting and driving

Werner Herzog, the veteran German-born filmmaker whose long career ranges from “Aguirre: The Wrath of God” to classic documentaries like “Grizzly Man,” “Little Dieter Needs to Fly” and “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” to a surprisingly effective turn as a villain in “Jack Reacher,” has turned his attention to a new topic: driving and texting. He’s directed the documentary “One Second to the Next,” featuring some of the people who have appeared in the “It Can Wait” campaign against texting and driving.  Herzog was inspired to create the film after directing this spare and effective 30-second PSA for the campaign:

Herzog’s film premieres next month in Los Angeles and will then be distributed to more than 40,000 schools, and will be available for viewing at www.itcanwait.com.
