Acclaimed filmmaker Nadine Labaki says she’s tired of the “female” label when it comes to filmmaking.

“I never felt being a woman made my job difficult,” she said at Kering’s Women in Motion panel in Cannes. “Filmmaking is difficult, period.”

Labaki, president of this year’s Un Certain Regard jury directed the hit drama “Capernaum,” also spoke about the challenges of being a Lebanese filmmaker and how she’s using art as a tool to better society.
