nicola’s first orgasm

south africa
Johannesburg
April 2002
5min 41 sec

starring nicola deane
music Vladimir Ashkenazy Beethoven Piano Sonata 21
camera, sound, edit, produced and directed by aryan kaganof

A fleeting yet funny anti-porn that sends up the “cum shot” while also delivering a strict feminist manifesto against sexual stereotypes. Funny, blasé, insouciant and allusive, Nicola’s First Orgasm bristles with a terrifying absence that evokes fleeting pleasures, lost opportunities and erratic fumblings towards orgasm.

signal to noise

japan-netherlands
1997
9min03sec

starring acéphale and masami akita
produced by frank scheffer for allegri film
sound recordist jeffrey babcock
sound mixer michel schopping
online editor j.p.luijsterburg
line producer misako furakawa
music : release from agony; rectal anarchy by gore beyond necropsy & merzbow
last kind word blues by geechie wiley
a real slow rag by scott joplin performed by david boeddinghaus
filmed on location at the kamakura temple
script, camera, edit and directed by aryan kaganof

Inspired by an art created miles from its origins to become its own translation of signal, texture, and pattern, Signal to Noise disrupts boundaries between tribute and theft, reinvention and repetition. Featuring music by Merzbow and evoking Roland Barthes, it’s both an art object and a sonic experiment investigating cinema through the lens of accumulation.

western 4.33

namibia-netherlands-south afirca
2002
32min26sec

starring boy thomas shipanga
produced by wiro felix for mandala film
director of photography wiro felix
sound design jane snijders
online editor Neil Stuart
super 8mm laboratory Frank Bruinsma
German translation Katharina Conrad
voiceovers by blixa bargeld and zola
music alec emprie, sun ra, macy gray, calexico, friedrich nietzsche, robert schumann, rodriguez, lamonte young, harold budd, virgins
script, edit and directed by aryan kaganof

In Western 4.33 Kaganof responds to the horror of the Herero Genocide with a cinema that is just as powerful as the pain delivered by the colonial oppressor. Filmed in the ruins of a German concentration camp in Namibia, where thousands of indigenous Herero people were incarcerated, Western 4.33 is a song to silence; a paean to a past that comes to us as present; an elegy that refuses to be an elegy, refuses to let the dead disappear.

a perfect day

south africa
1994-2004
3min 3sec

Shot on the first day of the first democratic elections held in South Africa and edited to commemorate the tenth anniversary of that democracy, A Perfect Day masterfully creates and expands a singularly intense metaphor into a beautiful yet disquieting argument for the revolutionary possibilities of love. As cutting as it is tender, as fleeting as it is endless.

Song For Hector

South Africa
2007
5min 03sec

re-edited and produced by Aryan Kaganof

music M.Ward performing David Bowie’s Let’s Dance

In Song for Hector, Kaganof remixes the Soweto riots of 1976 into an experimental cinema that demilitarizes, deconstructs, and decolonizes master narrative. Against the bleak banalities of South Africa’s violent history and the propaganda and amnesia of the present, Kaganof strikes back with a bracing admixture of remembrance, repetition, recapitulation and reinvention.

nice to meet you, please don’t rape me!

south africa-netherlands
1995-2009
35min 21sec

starring eric miyeni, matthew oats, gustav geldenhuys, bill curry and winnie ryall
produced by joost van gelder and aryan kaganof for stichting zapruder

written by aryan kaganof and peter j. morris
sound design stefan warnas
original editor j.p. luijesterburg
re-edited in 2009 by aryan kaganof

Made during South Africa’s first democratic elections, Nice To Meet You, Please Don’t Rape Me is a biting musical satire that challenges the newly found rainbow nation, questions the limits and constraints of freedom and forces us to acknowledge the devastating extent to which South Africa has been fucked and fucked over – systematically perverted by apartheid.

interactions: a strategy of difference and repetition

south africa-netherlands
2012
33min 10sec

filmed on location at the Goethe German Cultural Centre Johannesburg 21-23 November 2010
produced by Jeanneke Den Boer and Aryan Kaganof for Nederlands Theater Institut and African Noise Foundation
music by African Noise Foundation featuring David Mayekane
camera, sound, edit, produced and directed by aryan kaganof

Made in response to a commission by the Theater Institut Netherlands, Interactions: A Strategy Of Difference And Repetition expertly peels back the tattered facade of art world hypocrisy, deploying a compulsive inventiveness to provide an excoriating challenge to all cultures of complacency. Here art serves both as escape and as a threat, at once suspect and yet our only consolation.

Ashraf Cassiem – I’m Resisting

South Africa
may 2011
7min 31sec

produced for the Africa Centre
directed by dylan valley
edited by aryan kaganof
camera Antoinette Engel
music Blaze

Unnervingly timely, Ashraf Cassiem – I’m Resisting rages against the political apathy of the present. Thinking and speaking its way through the insidious, tragic inequalities of globalization, capitalism, and democracy’s alleged freedoms, it employs bracing intimacy, fervour and defiance to persuade its viewers to disavow a cynicism we can’t afford.

too drunk to fuck

south africa
september 2006
2min 31sec

camera catherine henegan
music nouvelle vague’s cover of the dead kennedys song
edit, produced and directed by aryan kaganof

At once a livid riposte to dry piety and a sobering comment on the social and political degeneration of our society— our marriages, our sex lives, our addictions and search for oblivion, Too Drunk To Fuck pulls the rug out from under our old stolid habits and our empty lives.

filmed and edited whilst artist-in-residence at stias (stellenbosch institute for advanced study) oct 2011-mar 2012
introudction text by giorgio agamben
camera, sound, edit, produced and directed by aryan kaganof

What kind of intervention can cut through neoliberal configuration of today’s university, which betrays its own liberal commitment to bring about emancipation? Kaganof’s answer comes as Stellenbosched, a powerful and necessary intervention that rages against social inequality and oppression and invites us to imagine and realise social life otherwise.

the legendary syd kitchen in “g-string blues”

south africa
2011
33min 57sec

“composed” and “directed by aryan kaganof
performed by syd kitchen
camera robert johnson
sound recordist jabu mxhaka
editor madala e. waters
sound design king tubby
additional music j.s.bach ich ruf zu dir, herr

Aryan Kaganof and musician Syd Kitchen meet at the crossroads to explore the deeply troubled waters of our social and sexual psyches, risking much, but, with courage and persistence, returning to tell the tale. Maybe, as The legendary Syd Kitchen in “G-string blues” suggests its only through such radical vulnerably and intimacy that the urgency of love can arise.

a leisure society of severe preponderence

netherlands-south africa
1995-2011
33min 19sec
cape town june 2011

camera wiro felix
sound hugo dijkstal
edit j.p. luijsterburg
filmed on location in The Hague september 1995 at the crossing border festival
directed by aryan kaganof
produced by louis behre, george brugmans and aryan kaganof for vpro and african noise foundation

A Leisure Society Of Severe Preponderence delivers a devastating assault on conformity culture, neo-liberal politics, literary pretension and the all around follies of the Western world. Using, ironically, anti-art strategies – appropriation, violation and collage, he Kaganof splinters the division between the high and the low, revelling in the contradictions and absurdities that transpire in a life lived crossing borders.
