LOS ANGELES — In his documentaries, Werner Herzog has examined grizzly bears, plane crash survivors, cave paintings and death row inmates. For his latest project, the 70-year-old filmmaker is exploring the dangers of texting while driving in "From One Second to the Next," a 35-minute short film that emotionally recounts how lives have been forever changed by the topic.

The documentary tells the stories of both victims and perpetrators. It will be available to watch Thursday at The film will also be distributed by AT&T to more than 40,000 high schools.

The film expands on the 30-second commercials that the director of such movies as "Grizzly Man" and "Aguirre: The Wrath of God" created for the "It Can Wait" campaign, an initiative intended to raise awareness about the issue.
