The Alternativity

The Alternativity is a story which takes us to the city of Bethlehem, world capital of the international Jesus Christ birthday business and this year Bethlehem became home to a very unique hotel. Billed as having the worst view in the world Banksy’s Walled Off hotel sits under the gaze of an Israeli watch tower in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The place where Christmas was invented now feels like a city under siege and in some serious need of some festive cheer. This is the story of what happened when artist Banksy asked a world famous movie director Danny Boyle, to come all the way to the little town of Bethlehem to put on a nativity play like no other in what was once the most Christmasy place on Earth.
