The video could be interpreted as a reference to colonization.

The imposition of power upon cultures and their subsequent subjugation: the collapse of the "unfit".

This work particularly focuses on the American continent, reflecting its last two major colonizations:
1492: by the predominant naval forces in Europe
1950s: the colonization within the continent. i.e.: economical-political-cultural colonization by the U.S.A.
