After studying social and political sciences, Sebastian Doggart entered the universe of theater and then TV production. Today, he delivers his first cinematographic production.

Devin Ratray, 30 years old, announces to his mother that he's found someone, and this someone is Condoleezza Rice. That is how the story of the Sebastian Doggart's latest production begins.

Devin is going to do everything he can to charm, seduce, court and eventually meet Condi. With a cheesy romantic musical backdrop and a documentary style, Devin is going to travel across the U.S to follow the trail of the story of his true love.

When regarding the story, the genre, the cinematography and the production (shoulder camera, interviews) we are made to think of names such as Sacha Baron Cohen, Michael Moore and Morgan Spurlock.

In 1986 Michael Moore produced Roger and Me, maybe the first "Documentary Comedy". Today, in a TV-reality show, Trash-TV, "eco-socio-political" documentary, political satire period, the Ratray film fits perfectly into this cinematographic movement.

One might describe this film as a breath of fresh air for this genre, as most have been far too moralistic and/or satirical; think more of 'Borat'.

With faux-documentary filming style and great acting from the lead actor, 'Courting Condi' has left a mark on this genre.

In a few words: 'Courting Condi' is a touch of British humor in an American TV-show universe sprinkled with political satire.
