Everyone has their own adventure(s) in life and so everyone obviously has their own definition of what a Hero's Journey is. All journeys, however, include a majority of the same stages; from slaying dragons, both literally and figuratively, following one's bliss and going into the belly of the beast. Before we go any further, let me explain what the Hero's Journey even is. The Hero's Journey is a series of events that Joseph Campbell studied and first identified as a journey that all people go though. The pattern of the events appears in not only works from all ends of the literary spectrum including drama and myths, but is also linked to psychological development and self-growth. This journey applies to fictional characters, of course,
There are many conflicts throughout the movie such as Luis fighting off the temptation to join the welcoming gang life style which looks to be his answer to finding a place where he belongs and a family that he no longer has. Luis is also trying to avoid becoming like his father in which he does not want to mow lawns and trim trees for a living and continuously fights with his father and has a lack of respect for what he does to earn money. Perhaps that biggest conflict in the movie is both Carlos and Luis against society which appears to be completely against them as they work together to get their stolen truck back but are met with nonstop resistance and obstacles, and in the end leads to Carlos finally getting his truck back but only to find himself getting pulled over by a police officer and getting sent to jail where he waits to get deported. Even with being deported in the end, the last scene shows Carlos getting ready to cross the desert with the guide of a paid human smuggler in an effort to get back to Luis as he promised. Just as they prepare to head into the desert Carlos says "Let's go home" symbolizing that even though his first home was in Mexico he has made a new home in America where his son waits for his return and where he has become a custom to living even with all the challenges he
Hunter steps back and smirks as Carter climbs to his feet and brushes off his clothes. Carter resists the urge to trip hunter as he runs toward the beach and up to Hillcrest. Carter walks up the dirt hill to the chapel. The path winds through the woods and the roots of the closely grown trees are used in place of stairs. Carter arrives at the chapel. They don’t use the space as often as they should. It is simple with large screen windows, a plain wooden cross, and unadorned altar at the front. They sing inside occasionally, but the campers often don’t care for the building, they find it oppressive. Carter pauses at the top of the hill. Surveying the camp spread out below him,
What images come to mind as you reflect on your childhood? Playgrounds, blackboards, and soccer balls may be among the warmest of memories. Yet for many mermaids swim their thoughts, princesses get swept of their feet, and lions roar to their loyal place in the animal kingdom. There is no doubt that today’s entertainment has most of its touch using classical influences. Walt Disney has produced animated films that have captured the heart and imagination of audiences of all ages around the world through the magic of storytelling and imagery. Many of us appreciate the imagination and magic that Disney puts into its animations with out knowing they are based off of classical and traditional storylines

He gets a calling card and leaves a message to see Luis before and they get to spend a few minutes together, but in the end Carlos is sent into the desert to find his way back to Mexico and Luis is left alone.

“Heroic Journeys: The Immigrant Experience as the Hero’s Journey in El Norte and La misma luna” is written by Professor Susan Wiebe Drake of Murray State University, analyzing the relationship between Joseph Campbell’s theory of “hero’s journey” and two Latino-produced films: El Norte and La misma luna. According to the author’s analysis, in both films, undocumented immigrants are portrayed as heroes, because they all went through three phases corresponding to Campbell’s theory about the heroic journey: departure, initiation, and return. However, one significant difference between the demonstration of heroes in these films and Campbell’s theory is that, neither of the endings of both films is explicitly shown as positive, due to the failure of undocumented immigrants to assimilate to American culture.
