Doc Club: Nothing Compares

Sorry, this event has sold out

Nothing Compares charts Sinéad OʼConnorʼs phenomenal rise to worldwide fame, how she used her voice to speak out against oppression and how her personality led her to be exiled from the mainstream music industry.

Focusing on Sinéad’s prophetic words and deeds from 1987 to 1993, the film presents a richly cinematic portrait of this fearless artist through a contemporary feminist lens.

The archive-led documentary features era-defining music videos and concert performances alongside previously unseen footage from this period. The film is underpinned by a new interview with Sinéad herself, in which she reflects on events in her own words, and from a present-day perspective.

Intimate first-hand contributor interviews add to the tapestry with additional insights from contemporary artists, musicians and social commentators introducing broader themes of Irish history, politics and global activism, all the while reflecting on Sinéad’s artistry, impact and legacy.

Running time: 1 hour 36 mins approx.
