Performer appeared in 35 feature films

Actor Jean Pierre Reguerraz of hit Argentine films like “Derecho de familia” (Family Law) and “La fuga” (The Escape) died Nov. 2 of undisclosed causes in Buenos Aires. He was 68.

Other performances were in Argentine writer Ricardo Monti’s “Marathon” and “Rayuela” and Anton Chekhov’s “Ivanov,” all directed by Argentine Jaime Kogan.

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.”
