BEYOND CHRON -- “Abina and the Important Men” is Soumyaa Behrens’ animated adaptation of Trevor Getz’s and Liz Clarke’s James Harvey Robinson award-winning graphic novel. This 1800s-set story concerns a young woman waging a legal fight for her freedom in Africa’s Gold Coast courts. Of local interest is the fact that the film is produced by San Francisco State University’s Documentary Film Institute.
