Spare Parts is the true story of a robot named “Stinky,” a scrappy creation imagined by a team of undocumented Mexican-born teens from Phoenix, Arizona. Encouraged by their coach to enter “Stinky” into a national underwater robotics competition, these boys overcame the odds to beat the country’s top student engineers, including a team from MIT. Experience the inspiring story through film at this free showing. Directed by Sean McNamara, this film stars George Lopez, Marisa Tomei, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
