Nothing Compares

Showtime Documentary Films has acquired worldwide rights to the Sinead O’Connor documentary and recent Sundance premiere Nothing Compares directed by Kathryn Ferguson.

The film premiered in World Cinema Documentary Competition and charts the Irish singer-songwriter’s meteoric rise to stardom and how she used her voice at the height of her fame before she was vilified in the media and pushed to the sidelines.

O’Connor, who continues to make music, reflects on her turbulent life through voice-over and the film includes first-hand insight from artists and social commentators.

Showtime negotiated the deal with Submarine and plans a theatrical release later this year in the US, UK & Ireland ahead of the Showtime premiere in the US and its international partner streaming platforms later this year.

Eleanor Emptage and Michael Mallie produced for Tara Films (UK) with Ard Mhacha Productions (Ireland). Nothing Compares is presented by Field of Vision. Executive producers are Charlotte Cook, Lesley McKimm, Lucy Pullin, John Reynolds and Lisa Marie Russo.

The film was supported by Screen Ireland, the BFI Doc Society Fund, IE:Entertainment and Northern Ireland Screen.
