Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to join us for a theatrical screening* of Nothing Compares, followed by an in-person conversation with director Kathryn Ferguson.
* All attendees must wear a mask upon entering and remaining within the venue. The mask must cover the nose, mouth and chin.
The critically-acclaimed documentary 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 trailblazer 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.
From SHOWTIME Documentary Films, Nothing Compares will play in select theaters Friday, September 23; be available via streaming and On Demand for SHOWTIME subscribers Friday, September 30; then premiere on-air on SHOWTIME on Sunday, October 2 at 10:00 pm ET/PT.
