Aryan Kaganof nasce nel 1964 a Johannesburg. Nel 1983 lascia il Sudafrica per evitare il servizio militare. Nei Paesi Bassi si impegna nel movimento anti-apartheid come ricercatore e attivista, e realizza anche alcuni programmi radiofonici dedicati alla promozione della musica jazz e degli esuli politici. In questo periodo pubblica numerosi articoli di musica e cultura per diverse pubblicazioni internazionali. Nel 1990 si iscrive alla Netherlands Film & Television Academy dove studia regia, sceneggiatura, montaggio e produzioni, laureandosi nel 1994. Mentre frequenta ancora il secondo anno vince con il suo primo lungometraggio, Kyodai Makes The Big Time, l’equivalente di un Oscar nei Paesi Bassi, il Golden Calf. Nel 1996 trasferisce un film da 35mm a video, in maniera pionieristica, con Wasted!. L’operazione riscuote un tale successo che viene chiamato in Giappone a realizzare un film simile, nel 1999, con Tokyo Elegy. Ritorna in Sudafrica in quello stesso anno, e nel 2001 è protagonista della prima personale del suo lavoro all’Association For Visual Arts di Cape Town. Nel 2002 Western 4.33 è presentato alla Berlinale e vince il Premio Miglior Film Africano al Festival di Milano. Nel 2005 realizza il primo film con la videocamera di un telefonino, Sms Sugar Man.
