Go No Go is Ad van Denderen's acclaimed project on migration and European border politics, produced by Paradox and first launched in 2003.

In Go No Go Ad van Denderen leads us along the edges of Europe where immigrants try to reach the West along smugglers' paths, with varying success. He takes us along to the police stations and refugee centers where, surrounded by their first-thick dossiers, investigators try to determine the identities of the refugees. He shows us how men kill time in pensions until a band of smugglers can get them over the umpteenth border. He follows the refugees right up to the barbed wire at the rail tunnel at Calais, where they cut their way through, and further, until they are confronted with the next fence laced with barbed wire.
