A title can certainly be a question, and as such, it should include a question mark.  There are many book titles with question marks, for example, How Does a Poem Mean?, by John Ciardi, at one time a popular college textbook,  Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume, which is a book you might have read when you were younger, and Are You My Mother?, by P.D. Eastman, a book I read to my children when they were very young.  If you think about it, you will be able to think of movie titles with question marks, too.  I have provided a link for you of a long list of titles with question marks.
