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. He also played in the country’s 2006 Oscar entry “Family Law” and other acclaimed films including “Las manos” (The Hands), “Garage Olimpio,” “Moebius,” “Eva Peron” and Maria Luisa Bemberg’s Oscar-nommed “Camila.”

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.”
