Abstract

With the continuous development of technology, for the creation of film and television, the audience not only requires the director to innovate in the content of storytelling, but also differs from traditional works in shooting technology and narrative way. The author theory makes the director’s personal style of the film increasingly prominent. More and more attention has been paid to the audio-visual language and narrative equipment of the scene. This paper takes Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk directed by Ang Lee as an example, and analyzes the way that director Ang Lee handles the visualization of narrative text of character trauma from the perspective of the author’s film, and the visual experience and inner feelings that are different from those of traditional films brought to the audience by technical aesthetics. This paper holds that the director Ang Lee realizes the visual transformation between the characters’ subconsciousness, memory and lyrical fantasy, and turns the core theme of the film from the apparent “anti war” to highlight the growth and choice of a young man after the war. The theme of “trauma” in the film shows the disappearance of time and the anxiety of space. This paper will provide a case for the practical analysis of the author theory, and help the academic circles to further discuss the director’s style and trauma narrative.
