Ms. White Light is the story of Lex Cordova, a young woman who counsels terminally ill clients who have trouble letting go. While proving uniquely talented in her ability to connect with the dying, Lex is at a loss when it comes to dealing with everyone else. When Valerie, a sharp-tongued free spirit who simply has no time for her own mortality, refuses to play by Lex’s rules, Lex is forced to question her own decisions, and must decide if the business of dying is truly worth it… even at the cost of living her life.
The film stars two-time Emmy and Tony winner Judith Light as Valerie. The cast also includes Roberta Colindrez, John Ortiz, and Zach Spicer. This is the second feature-length film released by Bloomington-based Pigasus Pictures and Ms. White Light has received wide acclaim after premiering at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

“Shoulberg displays a knack for portraying intimacy and poignancy in uniquely cinematic ways.” – Glider

Pigasus Pictures, LLC is an Indiana based production company with a forward-thinking, community focused approach to filmmaking. While strong desire for film production exists in the state, Indiana has no tax incentive for filmmaking, and so few feature films are produced there. Because of this void, there is wide grassroots support for the work of Pigasus. A commitment to region and a community-focused approach is unique to the film industry. Pigasus believes this commitment is what will lead to the company’s ultimate, long term success.
