Reguerraz acted in 35 feature films, mostly in supporting roles such as this year’s hermaphrodite drama “XXY,” Argentina’s candidate for the foreign-language Oscar nomination and the Spanish Goya Awards.

Despite a long illness, he continued his work with a stage performance only weeks before his death in “El confin” in his adopted city and in the shooting of Gonzalo Calzada’s film “Luisa.”
