Ms. Lopez has been in the CInema department since Fall 2003. She began as the manager for the equipment Issue Room. Ms. Lopez has taught in the Cinema department since Spring 2006 for several film studies courses, and has also co-taught CINE23, the beginning film production class.

She has taught at the University of Arizona, and has been a teaching assistant for several Cinema courses at San Francisco State University.

Ms. Lopez's first 16mm sound film, "La Llorona", addresses the cultural relevance of the story of 'The Weeping Woman', whose ghost haunts the riverbanks of the American Southwest, Mexico, and beyond. It pays respect to the tales, textures, spirits and elegance of her native land, the Sonoran Desert.

Her latest film, "A Second Final Rest: The History of San Francisco's Lost Cemeteries", takes a revealing look at why one of the world's liveliest cities has almost no graveyards, and how they were systematically erased from the urban landscape. Recollections of San Francisco residents and revelations of modern-day situations offer a surprising and often eerie look into the fate of the city's cemeteries.
