Hex Hex! The cheeky witch Bibi Blocksberg and her best friend Tina are an unbeatable team when riding their horses Amadeus and Sabrina. But this summer, they have to master various challenges at the farm Martinshof: The pretty and scheming Sophia von Gelenberg goes after Tina's boyfriend Alex von Falkenstein, while the malicious businessman Hans Kakmann is out to get Graf Falko's sweet foal "Socke". And when Bibi well-meaningly goes overboard with her witchcraft, even the two inseparable friends clash with each other... At the big horse-race at Schloss Falkenstien, Bibi eventually does not know whom she should fight for anymore. "Socke" and the friendship with Tina are at stake...


Detlev Buck was born in 1962 and made his fame as an actor, director and screenwriter at the age of 22. His short film TIME TO KNOCK OFF quickly became a cult classic. His first feature as a director was RABBIT FEVER, which won the Bavarian Film Prize. He followed this up with NO MORE MR. NICE GUY, which garnered an honorable mention at the Berlinale and two German Film Awards. His next film, JAILBIRDS, which he directed and starred in, made stars of the two female leads, Heike Makatsch and Marie Bäumer. In 2004, he won the German Film Award as Best Supporting Actor for his role in BERLIN BLUES (dir: Leander Haußmann). His other works as a director include: TOUGH ENOUGH and HANDS OFF MISSISSIPPI, both of which won German Film Awards in several categories, SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT, MEASURING THE WORLD, and all three BIBI & TINA films.
