Sinéad O’Connor Documentary ‘Nothing Compares’ gets Irish cinema release

This is not a typical “behind the music” documentary, the film from director Kathryn Ferguson focuses on O’Connor’s prophetic words and deeds from 1987 to 1993, the film presents an authoritative, richly cinematic portrait of this fearless artist through a contemporary feminist lens.  NOTHING COMPARES charts Sinéad OʼConnorʼs phenomenal rise to worldwide fame and examines how she used her voice at the height of her stardom, before her iconoclastic personality led to her exile from the pop mainstream.

The film, now tipped for an Oscar nomination was an official selection in the World Cinema Documentary Competition at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and has already won various awards at film festivals this year, including Best Irish Documentary at Galway Film Fleadh, the Audience Award for Best Documentary at Aegean Film Festival, and the Audience Award at Docs Ireland.
