He is also the founder and co-owner of Media Process Group—a Chicago-based television production company. Hercules’ work has been seen widely on PBS, the Discovery Channel, IFC, the Learning Channel and through television syndication nationwide.
Hercules’ most recent documentary, Senator Obama Goes to Africa, is a chronicle of Obama’s momentous 2006 diplomatic trip to Africa, including an emotional visit to Kisumu, Kenya—homeland of his late father. It has been shown in over 100 countries. Hercules’ 2006 feature documentary, Forgiving Dr. Mengele, tells the remarkable story of Auschwitz survivor and former ‘Mengele twin’ Eva Mozes Kor, whose decision to forgive the perpetrators as an act of self-healing sparked a firestorm of criticism. The film won the Special Jury Prize at the 2006 Slamdance Film Festival and the Crystal Heart Award at the 2006 Heartland Film Festival.
Hercules’ 1999 documentary, The Democratic Promise: Saul Alinsky & His Legacy (narrated by Alec Baldwin) examines the legendary community organizer, Alinsky, and his adaptive legacy. Funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the program aired on PBS in 2000. It won Best Documentary at the 1999 Philadelphia International Film Festival, a Special Jury Prize at the 1999 USA Film Festival and was nominated for an Emmy Award. His narrative short, The Last Frontier (a satire of the commercialization of our culture) won Best Dramatic Film at the 2001 IFP Midwest Film Festival and aired on the Independent Film Channel in July, 2002.
