Simnett has similarly subjected herself to physical duress in her films, forcing herself to repeatedly faint through hyperventilation Faint with Light , and submitting herself to vocal cord surgery to lower her voice The Needle and The Larynx , That said, whereas Death Control offers up a body that is whole and organic, Simnett conjures one that is fragmented and alien. The iconography in The Udder , a film shot on a robotic dairy farm, is particularly rife with such associations.
Toggling between a clinical account of bovine mastitis, a common yet painful disease, and a cautionary tale about female chastity, it is the first in a trilogy of works that includes Blue Roses and Blood both Tellingly, throughout the film, the eponymous udder is presented as a phallic appendage, disconnected from its body, and shown only in close-up.
