Imagine you are driving alone in your car. The radio is playing, and you are coming home from a great day at the beach. Out of nowhere, a bus hits you, and you find yourself awake in some unknown place. What would you do? How would you react? That is Incognito.

Incognito is a movie about a woman named Isabel (Autumn Harrison) who mysteriously ends up in a LA alley claiming she has teleported from the past. She is deemed insane and is transferred to a mental hospital where Dr. Phares (Tom Wade) tries to discover the truth of what happened to her.

The plot is somewhat confusing and can be hard to follow at times, yet don’t let that stray you from trying to understand the film’s themes. I have been trying to figure them even after watching this days ago. This short film has beautiful acting from its core characters, but this is not a character film. It is entirely plot-driven, and therefore director Jacky Song used cinematography to tell his story.

I want to praise this film for its cinematography. It is beautifully shot and does a great job switching between eras in time. Jacky Song deserves unlimited praise for the work he has done with this project. The film style creates a beautiful mystery surrounding the plot.

Overall, Incognito is a great mystery with some great themes of the modern-day political climate. I think everyone should see this film and try and understand it for themselves.
