"This thesis asserts that success for the protagonists lies in their ability to learn to accept the role of death in a world where magic would seem to have the power to allow them to defy it. By examining these trends in conjunction with their presence in the films Eve’s Bayou, Pan’s Labyrinth, and Spirited Away, I will prove that a desire for these types of stories exists in the Black community."
