Résumé: Le documentaire télévisuel prend l’essor depuis les années 1990. Dès lors, le documentaire dont la valeur esthétique se révèle de jour en jour tire l’attention du grand public. J’ai choisi l’oeuvre de Zhang Yiqing comme exemple pour étudier l’esthétique de l’inspiration du documentaire. Cet essai traite principalement : des opinions essentielles issues de la recherche esthétique et philosophique sur l’inspiration ; les moyens de narration du documentaire de Zhang tels que le thème, la structure, les détails et la philosophie ; l’utilisation du langage télévisuel du documentaire de Zhang comme le commentaire, la voix off, la lumière et le truquage ; l’influence sur le document traditionnel.
