SFDFF Co-Presents Peafowl at SFFILM
After the death of her father, Myung makes a pilgrimage to her hometown to lead her father’s funeral ritual, decades after she left in the face of family and community transphobia. Now a professional Waack dancer, Myung seeks to use her coming inheritance to fund her transition. As part of her homecoming, Myung helps her cousin come out and contend with his homophobic parents. A masterfully shot debut feature, Peafowl follows Myung as she confronts her relationship with her family and finds her personal style of dancing.
