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. Focusing on Sinéad’s prophetic words and deeds from 1987 to 1993, the ﬁlm presents an authored, 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.
Event includes live music at the Square from 8pm.
Optional barbecue available.
