dc.description.abstract This study investigated opening title sequences of movies in relation to revolution as a sociopolitical event. The cinema industry has historically been manipulated by governments and their political ideologies. Conversely, cinematic productions, as part of public entertainment, have had remarkable cultural influence. Title sequences, by transporting audiences into a movie’s story, play a part in these influences. A revolution is a defining point in time that ushers changes. This study considered three case studies, the revolutions of Cuba, Iran, and Venezuela. Six movies representing pre- and post-revolutionary cinema from each nation were examined from an aesthetic and narrative point of view. The results show that revolutions have had significant effects on movie title sequences as long as the act of making a movie is ideologically tied to the precepts of the revolution. Title sequences are responsive to technology, and advancements help filmmakers and graphic designers to make creative title sequences. en_US
