Dir. Kathryn Ferguson. 2022, 97 mins. DCP. Nothing Compares charts Sinéad OʼConnorʼs rise to worldwide fame and examines how she used her voice at the height of her stardom to speak out—before her iconoclastic personality led to her exile from the pop mainstream. Focusing on Sinéad’s prophetic words and deeds from 1987 to 1993, the film presents an authored, richly cinematic portrait of this fearless trailblazer through a contemporary feminist lens. The archive-led documentary includes era-defining music videos and concert performances alongside previously unseen footage, and features an interview with Sinéad herself, in which she reflects on events from a present-day perspective, plus additional insights from contemporary artists, musicians, and social commentators on themes of Irish history, politics and global activism, all the while reflecting on Sinéad’s artistry, impact, and legacy.
