Rowena Santos Aquino obtained her master's and doctorate degrees in Cinema and Media Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research and writings concentrate on questions of documentary aesthetics, ethics, and the audiovisual construction of knowledges, with an emphasis on the role of performance and hybrid docufiction forms as alternative models of testimony. Her writings have appeared in the journals Asian Cinema, Scope, Cinema Journal, and Transnational Cinemas, and she has been invited to contribute to edited volumes such as Film Music and National Cinemas (2016). Her current projects involve a contribution to the forthcoming edited collection The Philosophy of Werner Herzog (2019) and guest editing a special issue of Asian Cinema focusing on Asian documentary.
