Sinead O’Connor Documentary To Be Released On Sky And NOW

A documentary about the late Irish singer Sinead O’Connor is to be released on Sky and NOW at the end of the month.

The announcement was actually made weeks before the Nothing Compares 2 U singer’s death which was announced tonight (July 26).

The documentary was directed by Belfast-born filmmaker Kathryn Ferguson and is to be an archive-led retelling of the singer’s life and prolific career.

Sinead O’Connor documentary director Kathryn Ferguson speaks about ‘fascination’ with late star — Northern Ireland Screen (@NIScreen) July 24, 2023 Speaking of her “fascination” with the late Sinead O’Connor, Kathryn Ferguson said: “I grew up in Belfast during the 1980s and ‘90s. Women and their rights, particularly their reproductive rights, were very low down the pecking order. When Sinead burst into my consciousness as a young teenager, it felt like a door had been kicked open.

“Here was a bold Irish woman who said things that others didn’t feel they could say, and she said them loudly. The intention with this film is to disrupt the trope of telling iconoclastic women’s stories through the tragic heroine lens.

“Nothing Compares isn’t a regular music documentary, instead it’s a portrait of one unique artist, her cultural significance in Irish history and she has affected the lives of millions around the world.”

When will Sinead O’Connor documentary Nothing Compares be released on Sky and NOW? The documentary is set to be released on July 29, 2023, on Sky and NOW with those using these services able to view it from then on.
