Every Emotion Costs is a family drama set in the Ojibway community. Quilla is a painter. One day she receives a call that her mother has died, and she needs to go home to help bury her. Quilla has not been home or spoken to her family in years. She resents her dead mother for abandoning her and her sisters. Through ceremony and the burial, Quilla ignites the details of her past and surrenders to the harsh realities she has suppressed for so long. This film has a serious artistic direction, and it entertains with humor, rich characters, music and a visual impact of the northern landscape. Every Emotion Costs inspires its audience with love, the face of denial and addiction, while portraying a contemporary vision of First Nations people. Every Emotion Costs had its world premiere at imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival and was a Best Film Nominee AIFI Fest 2011.
