Yesmin, Bella, and Nati throw over their hijabs and film their playback performance to “Losing My Religion” with a smartphone. This results in thousands of clicks on YouTube; the three friends are now highly sought stars for festivals in, of all places, religious communities. This sets off a twisted culture clash between the girls; the sorrows of young twerkers. Kurdwin Ayub’s SONNE is the unprecedented film of its generation, urgently relevant in its form and content, the ironic deconstruction of all authenticity.
