Directory Statement

Every thousand years a rare flower blossoms at the Bigorski Monastery, testifying of another kind of beauty – not of this world. This is that exact beauty, that element, the fifth one, which is the very essence and meaning of the well-known four elements. It is that same thing which many enlightened and wise philosophers placed in the centre, as the essential meaning of enlightenment, therefore confirming that “Beauty will save the world”.


This film is about that particular “Beauty”, which has already saved the world once…

In fact, the film “A millennial witness of the Light” is a bouquet of ever-fresh flowers from the thousand years old garden of St. John the Baptist at the Bigorski Monastery.

Amid the distortions caused by the numerous ideologies which emerge from all the corners of our daily life, being privileged to approach this film as an author meant to stand fearlessly in the front lines of the rebellion… that’s the rebellion which Walters speaks about in the film.

The real, the final rebellion!

From the very beginning, CAT focuses on the younger generations, having in mind their education and creativity, as well as the promotion of these values. In this regard, it has produced many kids’ series, some of which were international, realized in cooperation with several Balkan countries. This production also took part in two international music festivals for children, organised summer youth and children camps three times in a row and even staged several children’s theatric plays. In co-production with the Children’s Creative Centre, CAT founded the first city children’s choir “The Kids of Skopje”.

Since CAT is a zealous protector of nature and wildlife, it has also produced some videos for the sake of protecting and promoting animal species, among which the documentary „The pets that marked 20th century – Red Ear Slider“, as well as short videos promoting the natural building. In the period from 2015 till 2020, in cooperation with the Public Health Institute, it organized ceremonious events for the celebration of World Water Day (March 22).

During its 20 years long existence, CAT produced many video clips, among which several commercial videos – TV commercials, corporate and promotive videos. It has also produced a few corporate documentaries, as well as two feature documentaries, one of which is the film “1000 Years Witness of the Light”.
