One of the strongest publicists at Showtime, Aquino never runs away from even the most challenging campaigns. When handed “The Trade,” a documentary series tackling the opioid crisis in the US, Aquino thought outside the box and secured think pieces in major outlets. She also worked to screen the episodes at colleges in an effort to educate as many as possible on the widespread effect the drugs have had on the US. She was also the only publicist on the ground at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, handling campaigns for “Love Means Zero” and “Eric Clapton: Life in Twelve Bars.”
